Latest European Union maps highlight recent political changes
Toronto, ON, March 9, 2017 – Avenza Systems Inc., producers of MAPublisher® cartographic software for Adobe® Illustrator® and Geographic Imager® geospatial tools for Adobe Photoshop®, is delighted to announce that updated political maps of the European Union (EU) are now available on the Avenza Map Store. After a sensational launch in Europe of the printed versions, map publisher XYZ Maps, is making the digital maps available through Avenza’s market-leading, award-winning mobile mapping app, Avenza Maps. Recently featured in the Scottish newspaper, The National, the standard EU 2019 – Post Brexit map shows the UK out of the EU. However, the map attracting widespread attention is the alternative Scottish EU 2019 – Post Brexit map as it shows an independent Scotland still a member of the EU, while the reduced UK of England, Wales and Northern Ireland are out.
“We continuously support all of our map publishers who strive to improve maps for everyone,” said Ted Florence, President of Avenza Systems Inc. “The ease and speed of which maps can be published to a world-wide audience using the Avenza Maps platform is unparalleled,” he added. “Historic events that change the political horizon are documented not only by the media and social networks, but also in maps because it can affect the way we travel and move.”
The Scottish EU 2019 – Post Brexit map and other maps of the EU and UK published by XYZ Maps are available on the Avenza Map Store.
