Cartography in Adobe CC – MAPublisher and Geographic Imager Advancements
By Nick Burchell, Spencer Elford, Avenza Systems Inc.
This presentation will provide an overview of advancements in MAPublisher and Geographic Imager since NACIS 2020. Topics will include advancements to our coordinate system library, great new import formats, and numerous workflow enhancements to both applications. We’ll also provide an update on new features coming soon.
Adobe released an update to Illustrator 2021 (v25.3) that includes native support for M1 Devices and Rotate Artboard functionality. Please note these features are not yet supported within MAPublisher at this time. See compatibility notes.
