MAPublisher software to be used in creation of updated city map.

Avenza Systems Inc., producers of MAPublisher cartographic software and MAPdataUSA and MAPdataWorld GIS data products, is pleased to announce that it will support HarrysMaps of Switzerland and the Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) project to remap the city of Nairobi, Kenya.

Along with other supporters such as P'Auer Printing Inc, Adobe Systems Inc. and Yupo Europe GmbH, Avenza will provide software and services free of charge to this not-for-profit project whose ultimate goal is to provide local decision makers, authorities, investors and tourists with handy, high quality paper maps for daily use.

MAPublisher will be used in the cartographic design and production work using data derived from the RCMRD's processing of satellite imagery to create the most up-to-date GIS database possible.
