Identifying the coordinate system or projection of a non-georeferenced map

In a previous blog, we discussed about how to georeference Adobe Illustrator document using MAPublisher. To recap, below are four of the required items to to make georeferencing possible:

  1. The scale of the map in the Adobe Illustrator document (e.g. 1 : 25,000,000, etc.)
  2. Details of the coordinate system the data is in (e.g. World Robinson projection, WGS84 geodetic system, WGS84 UTM Zone 32 N, etc.)
  3. The XY coordinates of one tie-in point in the coordinate system of your map in the Adobe Illustrator document
  4. The map's rotation angle.

We found that the most tricky information to collect is the coordinate system of the map. It can be very easy if it is clealy indicated in a map like this:

MAPublisher 8.4: Import Basic Personal Geodatabase without ArcGIS installation

Personal geodatabase can be imported to MAPublisher on both PC and Mac (MAPublisher version 8.4)

For many years, Esri has been promoting its geodatabase format. It is a great format that has many advantages over simpler formats and has seen many improvements and enhancements with each new version. We are pleased to announce that geodatabase feature classes can now be imported into Adobe Illustrator on both Windows and Mac using MAPublisher 8.4. Unlike the other geodatabase support feature within MAPublisher, this Basic Personal Geodatabase Reader does not require the installation of Esri ArcGIS products on the same computer because it uses a different import engine.
