For our MAPublisher training course we partner up with Rerink Cartography and Design to organise a practical course to teach you the basics of digital cartography. During this course students learn how Avenza's MAPublisher and Adobe Illustrator can be combined for produced high quality maps.Through several practical exercises we cover the entire cartographic production process:
Import GIS data
Projection / scale
Visualisation of GIS data by using Stylesheets
Textplacement with LabelPro
Combining raster and vector data
Make a register
Exports for print and web purposes
Export to Geospatial PDF for use in PDF Maps
In addition to a complete overview of MAPublisher's capabilities you'll leave with many tips and tricks. During the course there's enough time for (specific) questions. Computers, data and the needed software will be provided.

Anyone who works with maps and wants to use MAPublisher's possibilities to the fullest.
