Lt imports GIS data directly into Adobe Illustrator 10 & Macromedia FreeHand 10/MX with attributes intact.

Avenza Systems Inc. announces the release of MAPublisher Lt – a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator and Macromedia FreeHand. MAPublisher Lt, a subset of Avenza’s flagship MAPublisher software, allows users to import maps in various GIS formats directly into Illustrator and FreeHand with all attributes intact. Once imported, the user can enhance the map using the powerful vector editing capabilities that these applications are known for.

“MAPublisher Lt saves time by allowing existing map data to be imported directly into powerful vector editing programs,” said Ted Florence, president of Avenza Systems “MAPublisher is a good introduction to the benefits of the full MAPublisher and many people who purchase MAPublisher Lt take advantage of our no penalty upgrade to full MAPublisher offer,” he added.

  • Compatible with Macromedia Freehand 9 (win only), 10 and MX

MAPublisher Lt incorporates GIS object management tools such as feature selection and query logic tools for easy data selection.
