Avenza Helps Save The Elephants

Toronto, ON, May 11, 2007 – Avenza Systems Inc., producers of MAPublisher cartographic software for Adobe Illustrator and Geographic Imager spatial imaging tools for Adobe Photoshop is pleased to announce that it has provided MAPublisher and Geographic Imager software to Save The Elephants (STE), based in Nairobi, Kenya, so that it may more effectively support the conservation of the elephant population in Africa and communicate its message through better quality maps.

“In the past we struggled to present cold, hard GIS data in an attractive, meaningful format that would at once inform and impress its intended audience. The versatility of MAPublisher and Geographic Imager have allowed us to produce high-quality, professional-grade map products on a level that was simply not possible before, finally bridging the gap between the science of GIS and the art of cartography”, said Mike Deutsch, principal cartographer for the Gourma Elephant Project in Mali at Save The Elephants. “High-quality maps and visuals are a key part of our elephant conservation programs and remain one of the most effective ways to disseminate a large amount of data to a variety of individuals and organizations. Save the Elephants is grateful to Avenza for their generous support of our conservation efforts throughout Africa” he added.
