MAPublisher 4.0 is a suite of Xtras for Macromedia Freehand 9.x/10 that bridges Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology with high-end graphic design software for high-quality creation, high-resolution printing, and electronic publishing of maps. Cartographic-quality map production is now faster, easier, and better.Completing GIS graphics tasks is best performed in the right environment with powerful graphics applications such as Adobe Illustrator and Macromedia Freehand. MAPublisher takes the user into this environment seamlessly and effortlessly with the right GIS-data-management tools to facilitate the map-production process. Using this fast, intuitive system, a map can transcend the ordinary and become a work of art.Features:• makes the tedious process of map index creation easy, with it's new index-creation tools;• provides direct access to one of the most popular GIS file formats, ArcInfo e00;• DXF importer now supports R14 version files with colors, line weights, stroke patterns, and text;• MID/MID importer decreases the effort when moving files from MapInfo to MAPublisher;• multi-file import capabilities reduces the time needed to create complex multilayer maps;• exports e00 text labels;• import to same layer function merges layers of similar attributes making maps easier to label and transform;• GPS data (typically in ASCII text format) can now be imported directly into MAPublisher without the need for processing by costly GIS/GPS file conversion packages;• geo-reference GeoTIFF files easily with MAPublisher's new register image filter;•
projection editor has been redesigned to make it easier for first time users and now remembers imported projection and projection changes, making it easier to geo-reference data from various sources;• import filters for importing the most commonly used vector Geographic Information System (GIS) file formats with all attributes intact; DLG, SDTS, ArcInfo generate, ArcView Shapefile, DXF, and MapInfo MID/MIF file formats can be imported, then scaled to a chosen page size and map scale;• mathematically converts the Earth's curved, three-dimensional surface to flat map sheets;• converts the native coordinate system to scaled map sheets and the scale can be calculated into accurate real world coordinates; • use native projection, or convert to a choice of one of 119 projections; • tiles map files together in real-world coordinates and preset the orientation of X and Y axes';• view, edit, and update the data attribute/code list in spreadsheet form, edit or update an attribute list in a spreadsheet style interface, and select objects and view their attributes on the fly;• assign attributes to newly added objects and modify existing attribute columns through list, add, and drop column features;• add a new attribute column for a layer;• calculates values for several objects in one step;• select a column to drop from a pulldown list;• layer-management tools enable the user to select a limited set of features by attribute or code, or by feature type for viewing and editing;• label features using selected attributes, making tasks like street labeling easier, and options enable the user to include pointer lines or place text along lines; and• map-location tool enables the user to quickly identify geographic locations and display map scale and anchors in a floating palette.Manufacturer: Avenza Software Inc.
