Update adds KMZ export, adds measurement tool

Avenza has launched an update to its mapping software for Adobe Illustrator, MAPublisher 8.2. The software produces maps from GIS data for both electronic and print distribution, including GIS-format shapefile, with all attributes and georeferencing intact. It can also handle ESRI, MapInfo, MicroStation, AutoCAD, Google and U.S. Government files, preserving all GIS data attributes and geographic parameters. MAPublisher exports data in a variety of standard GIS formats, along with geospatial PDF documents.

Version 8.2 adds optional referencing and retention of attributes in geospatial PDFs for later re-importation to Illustrator. There are upgrades to LabelPro's collision-free labeling, the MAP web author tool, and grid and graticule functionality. A New MAP measurement tool has been added for measuring lengths, perimeters and areas in page or map units. Version 8.2 can now export in KMZ files.

MAPublisher requires Adobe Illustrator CS3 or CS4, 2GB of Ram (4GB is preferred), a dual core Intel processor or better, and Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. The software costs $1250 and is also available in academic, floating or volume licenses.
