Avenza Systems, producers of the Avenza Maps app for mobile devices and geospatial plug-ins for Adobe Creative Cloud, including Geographic Imager for Adobe Photoshop, has released Mapublisher 10.2 for Adobe Illustrator.

The software’s cartographic tools leverage the graphic design environment of Adobe Illustrator to manipulate features and produce print-ready, mobile, and online maps with accuracy and efficiency. This release streamlines data import, specifically the ability to target specific layers, attributes, and features using filtering options and tools. In addition, requested features such as new format support and GeoJSON export are also included in this release. Enhancements and new features include the ability to filter layers and attributes with expressions on import, simplified complex art on import, import support for WFS 2.0 and AutoCAD 2018, export support for GeoJSON and AutoCAD 2018, and user interface and usability enhancements. MAPublisher 10.2 is available free of charge to all users with currently active maintenance subscription and available at a reduced cost as an upgrade for non-maintenance users.
