TerraGo Technologies, a provider of mapping services, said it has gotten a strategic investment from In-Q-Tel, the independent venture arm of the Central Intelligence Agency and the nation’s wider intelligence community.

Agencies like the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency use TerraGo products to share geospatial data internally.

The company lets its customrs use the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) to send georegistered maps as PDF files with layers and embedded feature attributes.
