This 5-hour set of videos, with a voice-over in English, is aimed at both novice and experienced MAPublisher users and covers the same amount of material as a 2-day training course. Composed of a series of 12 individual movies addressing all of the MAPublisher functions, including special attention paid to new features such as the new MAP Web Author and MAPublisher LabelPro tools, this DVD bases its instruction upon common, real-life scenarios and includes all supporting dataset.
“We applaud the initiative demonstrated by Red Geographics in creating this video compilation and the highly professional and thorough nature of its presentation.” said Ted Florence, President of Avenza. “The instructional content of these videos provides the perfect self-learning environment for both novice and experienced MAPublisher users alike and is bound to turn anyone into an expert very quickly”, he added.
