The GeoPDF for ArcGIS Pro ribbon allows you to modify several of the default image (raster) and vector settings specified in the GeoPDF Preferences window, as well as to group together GeoPDF and non-GeoPDF files. These settings persist within the Project metadata once the Project is saved.
Input the resolution the export process should use for printing or displaying raster resolution in your exported GeoPDF file. The default resolution is 300 DPI. For more on resolution in GeoPDF files, see Understanding Output Resolution.
Compress Vector Graphics
When checked, the export process will compress the vector portions of your map document file to produce a smaller GeoPDF file.
Embed all Document Fonts
When checked, the export process will include the fonts that are used in the map document file, ensuring that the exported GeoPDF file looks the same when opened on any platform that supports PDF viewing.
Note: To ensure that your exported GeoPDF file can be viewed in languages other than your own, make sure to select Embed all Document Fonts and choose the appropriate Unicode font for your label text.
Prepend Page(s) From Source PDF
When checked, allows you to select a file to prepend to the front of the exported GeoPDF file. Click the browse button and locate the PDF you want to prepend.
The prepended PDF can be multiple PDF documents, 3D GeoPDF, or any non-geo PDF file, such as a coversheet.
Append Page(s) From Source PDF
When checked, allows you to select a file to append to the end of the exported GeoPDF file. Click the browse button and locate the PDF you want to append.
The appended PDF can be multiple PDF documents, 3D GeoPDF files, or any non-geo PDF file or files.
Make Compatible With
Choose the version of the GeoPDF toolbar the GeoPDF file should be compatible with.
GeoPDF Toolbar 3+ (OGC)
GeoPDF Publisher for ArcGIS Pro will use TerraGo's GeoRegistration encoding that was published as an OGC Projections and Datums . The OGC best practice is the most widely distributed GeoRegistration encoding in terms of existing PDF libraries and workflows because GeoPDF was the only geospatial PDF available preceding the release of Acrobat 9.
GeoPDF Toolbar 5+ (OGC Preferred)
GeoPDF Publisher for ArcGIS Pro will attempt to encode GeoRegistration using the OGC Projections and Datums . If the selected coordinate system is not supported in OGC, GeoPDF Publisher for ArcGIS will encode the GeoRegistration using ISO Projections and Datums .
GeoPDF Toolbar 5+ (ISO Only)
GeoPDF Publisher for ArcGIS Pro will encode GeoRegistration using only ISO Projections and Datums .
Note: Adobe implemented a different PDF GeoRegistration encoding when it released Acrobat 9 and submitted that method to ISO as a proposed extension to ISO 32000. Both OGC and ISO GeoRegistration methods encode the same information; however, more coordinate systems are supported using Adobe's GeoRegistration encoding. TerraGo software is capable of reading and writing both encoding methods.
