MAPublisher - Bridging the gap between GIS and Desktop Publishing

Do you have problems creating quality maps from your GIS? Do you have to call in experts to produce the finished maps for you? MAPublisher (from Avenza Systems of Canada) will help you resolve your problems. Working within Macromedia FreeHand or Adobe Illustrator (on Mac or PC), it lets you effortlessly import your GIS data from, say, ArcView or MapInfo. Furthermore, it retains your GIS map attributes and co-ordinates so you can continue to use GIS queries, view and edit your attributes, or change projections or scales.

Once you are in a DTP environment, you will obviously have full control over fonts and specification

enabling you to style up your map exactly as you want it. For example, if you were a planner with all your policy data on your GIS you would now have the ability to produce the maps yourself and output to Postscript ready for colour printing and when you have finished you can convert your Postscript files back to your GIS system!

MAPublisher is a complete suite of cartographic and GIS tools for your vector graphics programme. Make high quality professional maps while maintaining your GIS functionality. MAPublisher combines the best features of a graphics programme with the core elements of a GIS application to create a cost effective yet powerful cartographic solution. This unique blend of graphics and GIS allows for a shorter learning curve than found with most GIS packages so that you can get up and running and begin producing quality results quickly and cost effectively. MAPublisher can be integrated into geography, cartography or GIS workflows at most levels.
