Connect to ArcGIS Online within Adobe Illustrator to import and work with data layers
Toronto, ON, January 4, 2017 – Avenza Systems Inc., producers of the Avenza Maps app for mobile devices and geospatial plug-ins for Adobe Creative Cloud, including Geographic Imager® for Adobe Photoshop®, is pleased to announce the highly anticipated integration of ArcGIS Online into the latest release of MAPublisher 9.9 for Adobe Illustrator.
Map makers and GIS professionals can sign-in to their ArcGIS Online account, view available data layers, and import them directly into Adobe Illustrator, while maintaining all georeferencing, geospatial features, and attributes. Unlike Esri’s recent ArcGIS for Adobe Creative Cloud offering, MAPublisher maintains a true GIS-like operating environment within Adobe Illustrator and does not drop attributes or geodata. In addition, users can connect to ArcGIS web services, providing the flexibility to import data from a wide variety of sources. ArcGIS Online is also included in the MAPublisher Point Plotter tool as an option to geocode addresses (using ArcGIS Online service credits).
“MAPublisher is evolving with the integration of ArcGIS Online,” said Ted Florence, President of Avenza. “We’re committed to providing professionals with more options to get data into Adobe Illustrator using MAPublisher so that can they make the best map products possible,” he added. “From start to finish, MAPublisher makes it easy for anyone to add geospatial data from a variety of sources, create maps with intuitive mapping tools and publish maps to print, web, and mobile-ready formats.”
