Avenza Systems Inc., Toronto, Ontario, Canada, producers of MAPublisher cartographic software, and its Australian Reseller, Ozemap, announce that The Papua New Guinea University of Technology has selected MAPublisher software for use in the Department of Surveying & Land Studies computer laboratory.

MAPublisher will be primarily used in the department's cartographic processing laboratory.

MAPublisher is powerful map production software for creating cartographic-quality maps from GIS data. Developed as a suite of plug-ins for Adobe Illustrator and Xtras for Macromedia Freehand, MAPublisher leverages the superior graphics editing capabilities of these applications with the strength and power of GIS data.

The Department of Surveying and Land Studies at The Papua New Guinea University of Technology offers a number of courses that could be broadly described as the collection, collation, analysis, interpretation and application of spatial and economic data associated with the land. The application of technology is emphasized as is the role of the professional in the development of Papua New Guinea. The Department's facilities include a comprehensive digital mapping, geographic information systems and remote sensing laboratory, state of the art global positioning systems technology and software, a cartographic processing laboratory and automated surveying systems as well as the usual surveying and mapping facilities. The Department is also involved in a number of research programs including volcanic deformation monitoring and remote HF radio data transfer using GPS. The Department has been producing graduates for over twenty five years many of whom occupy senior positions in Government and the private sector in PNG and the Pacific Region.
