December 20th, 2017, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Avenza Systems has released Mapublisher 10 for Adobe Illustrator, map production software to create high-quality maps from GIS data. The software’s cartographic tools leverage the graphic Adobe design environment to produce print-ready, mobile, and online maps. This update includes many new features and enhancements, including the ability to manage data links where Map layers in a document can be updated when its source data has been modified.

This version is also fully compatible with the latest Adobe Illustrator CC 2018 on both Windows and Mac. The new attribute filter and geometry filter capabilities allow users to select which layers, attributes and features to include or exclude prior to import. Other enhancements and features include Visvalingam-Whyatt simplification method and fault tolerance settings, scale bar styles and customisation options, a Map Tagger Tool to create custom leader lines, and a new Point Utilities action that can rotate points to the angle of latitude.
