Avenza Systems Inc., producers of MAPublisher cartographic software, announces that the School of Mathematical & Geospatial Sciences at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia has chosen the MAPublisher software for use in their cartographic lab.

MAPublisher will be primarily used in the software lab by staff and students towards the degree. This 3 year program educates students who have an interest in multimedia technology and geographical visualization, and who wish to apply these interests to tasks involving the design and production of contemporary maps and geospatial products. The program then allows students to enter the bachelor of Applied Science in Geospatial Science (honours), where they are able to undertake a research programme that focuses on a contemporary cartography issue. Students will be able to take advantage of the graphics capabilities of MAPublisher to produce high-quality maps.
