What's new?

MAPublisher is a powerful suite of mapping tools for Adobe Illustrator CS6 / CC 2014 / CC 2015 that bridges the gap between geographic information systems (GIS) and high-end graphic design software in order to facilitate the map creation process. MAPublisher offers additional panels, functions, and tools to the powerful Adobe Illustrator design environment that enable GIS data files to be used as a base for cartographic production destined for print, web or mobile content.


MAPublisher 9.7 is a full release that includes support for Adobe Illustrator CC 2015, enhanced functionality, stability improvements, and additional format support.


The following summarizes new features and enhancements in MAPublisher 9.7:
