Geomatics Institute in Lindsay equipped with 60 licenses of MAPublisher software.

Avenza Systems Inc. announces that Fleming College has equipped their Geomatics Institute in Lindsay with 60 licenses of MAPublisher software. This implementation extends the existing usage of MAPublisher in Fleming’s Geomatics program. Future plans call for additional MAPublisher seats to be installed in the college’s new Institute of Geomatics at Fleming in Fall 2003.

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 Macromedia FreeHand, MAPublisher leverages the superior graphics handling capabilities of these software packages. MAPublisher licenses are US$849 and include one year of maintenance. Special academic pricing is available. MAPublisher is sold direct and through an international reseller network.

Fleming College, with campuses in Peterborough, Lindsay, Haliburton and Cobourg, offers outstanding programs in a variety of disciplines including Geomatics. The Geomatics Institute at Fleming delivers customized training for government and industry and post-secondary education, including Ontario’s first Geomatics Technician Diploma program (Fall 2003, pending Ministry approval). The Geomatics Institute at Fleming is funded by a grant of $1.57-million from Ontario’s Strategic Skills Investment program through the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade and through the private sector, including in-kind donations. The Institute is part of Fleming’s Lindsay-based School of Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences, recognized across North America for the breadth and quality of its programs.
