Delivering mobile maps just became even easier for our Avenza PDF Maps vendors! This is a brief overview of how a vendor can easily create QR codes (Quick Response Codes) to help them promote, sell, and deliver maps electronically.
QR Code usage is gaining popularity. A QR code is a two-dimensional barcode that can be easily scanned using any modern mobile device. When scanned, the mobile device automatically launches a web browser to direct the user to a website or other action. In our case, the map product page (free or purchase) in the Avenza Map Store.
These QR codes can be strategically placed on printed maps, signage, websites, advertising and anywhere else your maps are promoted.
An example of such a QR code is:
The new MAPublisher 8.7 Georeferencer is a fast, easy, and accurate way to update your current unreferenced map collection or data to prepare it for PDF Maps or other digital formats.
The first step is to open your unreferenced document in Adobe Illustrator. If the document is a vector PDF it is often advantageous to rasterize the document and save it as a TIFF to avoid any conflicts with text.
