Adobe 2020 Compatibility
This version of MAPublisher is fully compatible with Adobe Illustrator 2020 so go ahead and upgrade! Are you excited? We are too, but mostly about the other new stuff that is also included in this version of MAPublisher.
Want to add mileage markers or mark intervals along roads, trails or other paths? Do it automatically using this new feature! Options for interval markers are found in the Path Utilities tool.
- Define the distance of the interval and the units
- Select and style the shape of the interval marker
- Choose the font type, size, and spacing within the marker shape
- Choose where to start and how to increment the markers
Tired of scrolling through hundreds of irrelevant fonts to find the ones you like? Now you can select your favourite fonts to appear at the top of the font selection list in Illustrator, saving you time and the reactivation of your repetitive stress injury. Recently used fonts will also appear at the top of the list.
NOTE: Screenshot is for illustrative purposes only. We do not advocate for the use of the Comic Sans font by anyone, at any time, for any reason. Ever.)
Customizable MAPublisher Toolbar
MAPublisher has a lot of tools. That’s a good thing, right? But let’s say you’re in a minimalist mood, or just want to simplify your life by tidying up the clutter. Customize the MAPublisher toolbar by selecting which tool categories to display on the toolbar, and hiding the ones you don’t use often. Ahh, now that’s better.
Display Coordinate System Information on Scale Bar
Often, maps include the name of the coordinate systems in which the map is displayed, for reference purposes. It’s easy enough to create a text box and add this information manually, but we’re all about avoiding manual work.
Click the Display coordinate system checkbox in the Scale Bar to include the MAP View coordinate system as part of the scale bar.
- Customize the label so that it reads the way you want it to
- Decide on the positioning of the text above, below or beside the scale bar
- Choose to center or align the label as you see fit
Other Useful Enhancements
You can now copy ‘read-only’ attribute values from MAP Attributes. Presumably, if you need or want to use this capability, the description of it probably makes sense to you.
Copy MAP Objects
In the past, you could not automatically link copied objects to layers in the destination document if it contained layers with the same name as the layer in which the copied object originated. Still with us?
Now you can automatically link objects (MAP Themes and Selections) to layers even if the destination document contains layers with the same name as the source document layer which is tied to the copied object. Now, grab a cup of peppermint tea and look at that neat and tidy toolbar for a few minutes to refocus.
New Oil & Gas symbols have been added to the MAP Symbols Library, as requested by users in this industry.
MAPublisher makes it easy to make maps in Adobe Illustrator without the manual work, and with the flexibility to style and design maps while retaining the geospatial integrity of the map data. It’s the bridge between the art and science of cartography.
The following is a brief overview of the features and tools included in MAPublisher.
Import and Export Data
Import data from mapping applications such as ArcGIS, MapInfo, MicroStation, Google Earth and other sources with all attributes and georeferencing intact. Make vector and database edits, data edits, additions and save your changes to a variety of GIS data formats. Newly supported formats are KMZ, GML and S-57 (import only).
The MAP Views panel controls the Adobe Illustrator layers organization into geographically referenced entities. It offers many ancillary tools: export to GIS format, layer lock and display control, Switch to MAP View, exchange MAP Objects between Adobe Illustrator documents.
Several geographical references can be maintained per document (e.g. main map and inset maps), stored as MAP Views. Each MAP View scale, transformation, position on the artboard is configured through the MAP View Editor — with many option for display, zoom, rescale, rotation, and so on.
The attribute table holds map attribute information for line, area and point data. Add and remove columns, edit schemas, join tables, calculate and apply expressions to customize map attributes. MAP Attributes are the base to many other MAPublisher tools (such as line functions, MAP Themes, and MAP Web Author). They can also be exported to text file for further usage.
MAPublisher quickly and easily styles map features using Stylesheets, Charts and Dot Density themes. Specify rules and expressions to apply preset or custom symbols, graphic styles and character styles to artwork based on existing map attributes. Use various classification methods to easily create data classes. In addition, create highly customizable MAP Theme Legends.
MAPublisher panels seamlessly integrate into the user interface and can be resized, moved, and docked just like native Adobe Illustrator panels.
The MAPublisher Toolbar allows you to easily launch all the main MAPublisher tools with a single click.
MAPublisher LabelPro™ revolutionizes the way users can label map data, including using symbols as labels and label conflict resolution with a high degree of customizable rule-based labeling options. The MAPublisher LabelPro engine uses your map data attributes for labeling with styles, rules and controls. The interface was redesigned for and includes more settings such as label filters and expressions.
MAP Web Author HTML5 export
Export Adobe Illustrator documents with GIS data to interactive HTML5 web maps complete with callout bubbles, rollovers, layer control, pan and zoom controls, and with all the underlying GIS attributes intact. HTML5 web maps can be created without the need for browser plug-ins. HTML5 web maps are suitable for mobile use on tablets and smartphones. MAP Web Author export settings include recommended sizes for display on mobile devices.
MAP Vector Crop Tool
Crop map documents by exact locations (including MAP Locations) and dimensions. Easily remove unwanted data while preserving attributes and styles. Perfect for creating inset maps. Crop To Shape tool can use any shape to crop.
MAP Point Plotter Panel
MAP Point Plotter places points (e.g. locations of towns or cities) based on user input locations onto any projected map in projected units or lat/long format (decimal degrees, or Degrees Minutes Seconds). MAP Point Plotter also offers the option to instantly plot centroids for line or area features.
The Area Plotter tool creates new rectangle or ellipse polygons on MAP Area layers by using page or world coordinates, and by location type (using either a bounding box or by a single coordinate position). Use it to create precise area shapes based on coordinate locations.
Geospatial PDF Import and Export
Ability to import geospatial PDF documents quickly and easily using MAPublisher. This import method can automatically assign the content in a geospatial PDF to appropriate MAP Layers and a MAP View. Export map data to a geospatially enabled PDF. In this process, all objects and associated MAP Attributes information (when available) are ported to PDF, while also maintaining the map coordinate system. When a geospatial PDF is opened with Adobe Acrobat Reader 9, one can find locations, measure distances, add location markers as well as copy coordinates to the clipboard. Additionally, objects can be selected and queried and their MAP Attributes can be viewed in the Adobe Acrobat Model Tree.
MAPublisher Spatial Database import
Import spatial data from Esri Personal Geodatabase (.mdb), File Geodatabase (.gdb), and ArcSDE servers. This function requires Esri software and a valid license installed on the computer and consequently it is only available on Windows operating systems. Supported feature types are Point, Polyline,
Polygon, Circular Arc, Elliptical Arc, Bezier Curve, Annotations (text). The MAPublisher Spatial Database import allows for SQL queries and spatial filters.
MAP Measurement Tool
The MAP Measurement Tool measures straight distances (between two points), path distances (multiple points), azimuths, and the perimeter and area of closed paths — in page or map unit (real world distances). Furthermore, the measuring path can be converted to a line or area in the currently selected layer.
Build, edit and apply multiple selection criteria based on the attributes and properties contained in MAP Layers using MAP Selections. Selection criteria are created in an expression builder and can be applied to any MAP layer, and can be saved so they can be edited or applied later.
Join areas, lines or points and flip lines while keeping attributes intact. Use Simplify Line to reduce the number of vertices in a point (with preview and information on the number of filtered points). Create lines based on a series of point locations. Use Buffer Art to create buffer areas around line, area or point features. Join Areas can dissolve multiple areas into a larger area and still retain attributes.
Create labels for map objects using values from the MAP Attributes panel. MAPublisher provides two methods of adding labels to your map: Label Features labels specified layers automatically; and MAP Tagger Tool labels features individually through user selection.
Register images accurately to your vector data. MAPublisher determines the parameters of the raster image and the coordinate system of a selected MAP Layer in the registration process. A MAP Layer feature type called Image allows georeferenced images to be placed accurately. In addition, Import and Multiple Data Import now supports image formats which simplifies the process of importing them into an Adobe Illustrator document.
Easily add customizable map elements such as scale bars, north arrows and map legends. Choose from preset designs or edit an existing one.
The new Merge Layers tool combines at least two MAP Layers of the same feature type into a new MAP layer based on its attribute values. The art from the source layers can either be copied or completely moved to the new layer (including its attributes).
The Split Layer function splits a layer into new layers based on an expression or by unique attribute value. The qualifying features can either be copied or moved to a new layer, while maintaining all their attribute data.
The MAPublisher Log records information about which MAPublisher tools were used and when they were used. View detailed information about successful operations, warnings and errors.
MAPublisher License Management
The MAPublisher License Management system helps users manage their licensing in a more streamlined and user-friendly manner. Users can now evaluate the product, register, retrieve their licenses and checkout a floating license, all in a single dialog box. Additionally, MAPublisher panels are now marked with a lock icon when the software is not licensed.
The MAPublisher Preferences allow users to fully customize their MAPublisher experience. Control everything from the way layers are sorted to the font used to display attribute data or style of the MAP Selections panel. This includes several previously hidden options that used to be the domain of advanced users.
Web Feature Service and Web Map Service
Two import features: Web Feature Service (WFS) and Web Map Service (WMS). Access these features through Import or Multiple Data Import. WFS accesses web servers that deliver vector content in GML format. WMS access web servers that deliver raster content in a variety of formats.
The Create Halo tool produces halo graphic styles and applies halos to features on MAP layers. Halos can be independently created as a graphic style without having them applied or they can be directly applied to a MAP layer without having to create a graphic style.
Scale and Rotate By Attribute
The Scale & Rotate By Attribute tool provides options to scale and rotate art objects using specified values or the target MAP layer's attributes.
Text Utilities performs many text actions such as correcting upside down text, separating multiline text into single line and cropping text path to text length. These actions can be applied to either all text layers or specific text on a layer. Right-to-Left Text is used to apply proper formatting to right-to-left languages such as Arabic and Hebrew.
The MAP Locations are used as annotation to identify map world or map page locations. These locations can then be used in other MAPublisher functions when specifying map or page anchors and in tools such as Specify Anchors, Area Plotter, Line Plotter and Point Plotter.
MAPublisher FME Auto
With the add-on MAPublisher FME Auto license comes the ability to import FME FFS files. Use FME Desktop tools to translate GIS data to work with MAPublisher for a true automated workflow.
