With the Publisher for Raster user interface, you can:
preview the output image before you generate the GeoPDF file as well as select an area of interest on the original source image file and then generate a GeoPDF file that includes only that selected area
specify file generation parameters such as compression type and quality, PDF map scale or DPI, whether the image style should be grayscale or RGB, and whether to apply a histogram stretch to improve color balancing on visible spectrum data
specify the tile width and height in pixels and whether the source image file has to be GeoRegistered
define text to be appended to the output file name
override the coordinate system in the source image file
specify whether the output file should be optimized for TerraGo Mobile.
Publisher for Raster uses the GDAL 1.8.0 translator library released by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation for raster geospatial data formats. Refer to GDAL's specifications for supported versions and limitations at http://www.gdal.org/.
