Presentation Title: Moving Towards Digital Map Delivery for the 21st Century - A Discussion On The Use of PDF and other Technologies for Digital Map Distribution
Abstract: In an age in which paper maps are being used less and less frequently and an increasing number of maps are being used digitally on GPS devices, cellular phones and in-car navigation systems, the challenge for all map publishers, whether academic, public sector or commercial, is how to address this new market and medium and to ultimately continue the life of their map assets and products within these new media platforms. This presentation/discussion will focus on the relatively new geospatial PDF and other technologies and how they are changing the cartography industry. There will also be a demonstration on how geospatial PDF technology is currently being used in cartography, which software can produce and read them, and how it can be incorporated into your own workflow. Included in this presentation will be the use of PDF maps on Apple iPhones and iPads in combination with the GPS and location based abilities of such devices.
