Layout Tools

MAPublisher contains layout tools for plotting accurate scale bars, elevation profile, and north arrows onto your map.

The Scale Bar tool offers a number of different designs that you can choose from, including double-bar designs for the placement of scale bars in multiple units.

The Elevation Profile tool provides a way to create elevation profile charts in order to give map readers a visual understanding of the terrain.

North Arrows are created from selected artwork on the page using the Create North Arrow tool and are immediately aligned to true north.
