Map2PDF for Raster
The raster team at TerraGo has been hard at work at getting requirements in place for the next generation of Map2PDF for Raster. An example dataset has been put together to demonstrate how anyone can export a wide variety of raster data to GeoPDF. Follow the links below to see the PDF's that were created from Landsat TM data. You might also want to check out a more in-depth description of what the various Landsat TM band combinations are and why they might be useful.

- 3,2,1 Band Combination: The "natural color" band combination.
- 4,5,3 Band Combination: This combination of near-IR (Band 4), mid-IR (Band 5) and red (Band 3) offers added definition of land-water boundaries and highlights subtle details not readily apparent in the visible bands alone.
- 7,4,2 Band Combination: This combination provides a "natural-like" rendition, while also penetrating atmospheric particles and smoke.
- 4,5,1 Band Combination: Healthy vegetation appears in shades of reds, browns, oranges and yellows. Soils may be in greens and browns, urban features are white, cyan and gray, bright blue areas represent recently clearcut areas and reddish areas show new vegetation growth, probably sparse grasslands.
- 4,3,2 Band Combination: The standard "false color" composite. Vegetation appears in shades of red, urban areas are cyan blue, and soils vary from dark to light browns.
- All Bands: This one is really cool because you can interactively turn all the bands on and off.
