I'm a big fan of the Goode's Interrupted Homolosine projection.

At the moment, my workflow is pretty strictly MaPublisher/Illustrator based, and there doesn't seem to be an easy solution there: MaPublisher supports Goode's Homolosine, but only in an uninterrupted form.

In Googling for advice, I see an older paper talking about how to kluge together the 12 segments of a classical GIHP (I think it's from about 10 years ago). I see ESRI supports interrupted Goode, and so I'm thinking direct illustrator export from ESRI may be the way to go, but I wanted to check if there are other alternatives before I dive in... like is there a way to create interrupted projections in MaPublisher without cutting the world up into different projections in separate layers?

In general, if you want to use MAPublisher to produce a map using a projection that MAPublisher doesn't support, you can prepare the GIS file in any other application that does support that projection (FME, Manifold, Global Mapper, ArcGIS) and simply import those into MAPublisher. Just don't specify a source coordinate system.
