Visualising geographic changes over time

May 2nd, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

TerraGo Publisher for ArcGIS® version 7.4 now includes the ability to create and share GeoPDFs that convey important changes over time for an area of interest, with any type of map or imagery. Users can share these time-series map layers as a universally available GeoPDF, enabling non-GIS users to measure past conditions, assess changes over time, analyse trends and even project future scenarios. Time-enabled GeoPDFs can help deliver important geographic analysis to a wider audience, which is valuable for sharing information with policy makers, agencies, stakeholders and constituents. Time-enabled, interactive maps can be utilised in a number of different geographic analysis use cases, including coastal populations impacted by rising sea levels, progress of recovery efforts for a hurricane disaster zone, forestry and environmental impacts due to policy change, shifting crime patterns in different types of city zones and satellite imagery showing impact of regional military conflicts on local populations, to name a few. Version 7.4 also includes a number of additional enhancements and improvements including support for ArcGIS version 10.6.0.
