MAPublisher integrates seamlessly in Adobe Illustrator and this combination provides you with the ultimate platform for digital cartography; the complete cartographic workflow - from raw data to producing a high quality map. MAPublisher is easy to learn and by following our training course, you ensure the ability to use the software to the fullest.MAPublisher is an Adobe Illustrator plugin which bridges the gap between GIS and graphic software. This allows you to use geographical data to quickly produce high quality maps. MAPublisher combines the best of GIS in combination with Illustrator's powerful design tools.
Thanks to MAPublisher, most popular GIS formats (such as Geodatabases, Shapefile, MapInfo mid/mif, ArcInfo E00, GML, DXF and S-57) can be imported in Illustrator, while retaining scale, projection and attributes. In addition, appointing styles based on those attributes to the objects in the map is also possible. This drastically speeds production up.
Since you're working in Illustrator, you still have access to the tools necessary to convert your geographical data to a printable file. Another advantage is the ease with which you can make and post an interactive Flash-map.
An useful addition in MAPublisher: LabelPro.
The MAPublisher LabelPro labeling Engine offers advanced text labeling options. With LabePro it is possible to overcome the most frequent issues, like solving layerconflicts, classifying obstacles for text placing and creating complex textplacingrules.
LabelPro uses the MAPublisher attributes for placing the text and offers an intuitive interface for more controle. Once the rules are set, they can be saved for re-use or share them with other users.
