Hello

I was wondering if anybody knows how (or if) to export a map created in ESRI's BusinessMAP 3.5 to either ArcMAP 9.2 or Adobe Illustrator. In general I need to use BusinessMAP to produce a choroplethic map of the US by counties of over 100,000 inferences. Once this map has been created, I want to get the vector into Adobe Illustrator where I can fine tune the map. I know that I can export an ArcMap to AI, but I do not know the export capabilities of BusinessMAP.

thanks,
kru

kru - I am not familiar with BusinessMap - if you have ArcMap, can't you just as well do it there?

Thanks for the reply Frax,

Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with BusinessMap either. I could do the analysis in ArcMap, but I do not think that a data layer exists with all the zip codes geo-referenced like they are in BusinessMap. There are several thousand zip codes in the US and to make that layer would be too time consuming for this project. Does anyone know of a geo-referenced zip code/ county map of the US?

Thanks

I believe there are ZIP Code polygons and point files on the Data & Maps disks that came with ArcMap. You could then spatially join a county layer with one of those ZIP layers.

Hey Doug,

I'll have to see if those data are installed on our computers on campus. They may be, I've never looked. Thanks for your guidance.
