An interesting Webinar takes place this Wednesday at 10am PDT. The AdobeUsers.com GeospatialPDF Webinar covers:

  • How GIS professionals can create full-featured map layouts with attributes, labels and layers in ESRI’s ArcMap and use TerraGo Publisher to export them to a geo-registered, portable PDF
  • How to use PDF maps in the field, including querying the spatial data (e.g., find coordinates of a location or accurately measure distance, perimeter and area) and creating spatially intelligent markup using the tools in Acrobat 9
  • How GIS staff in the office can roll field markups within a PDF map back into the enterprise quickly and efficiently

It sounds like a good overview of using PDF to share spatial data and maps. Definitely worth the time.

Even Ben Franklin was interested in getting the message out to the old world about geospatial PDFs.
