Op 23 en 24 April 2008 organiseert Red Geographics een cursus met als onderwerp digitale kartografie in Adobe Illustrator en Avenza's MAPublisher. Het doel van deze cursus is de deelnemers inzicht geven in hoe Illustrator en MAPublisher samen gebruikt kunnen worden bij de produktie van hoogwaardig kaartmateriaal.

Inhoud
Aan de hand van een praktijkvoorbeeld wordt het hele kartografische produktieproces doorlopen:
  • Voorbereiding document
  • Voorbewerking GIS data
  • Import GIS data
  • Projectie / schaal
  • Visualisatie GIS data door middel van Stylesheets
  • Tekstplaatsing
  • Combinatie raster- en vectordata
  • Aanmaken register
  • Export voor druk- en web-toepassingen

Daarbij komen, naast een volledig overzicht van de mogelijkheden van MAPublisher, ook vele handige Illustrator-tips aan bod. Ook zal er voldoende ruimte zijn om in te gaan op specifieke vragen.

Dit is een praktijkgerichte cursus, computers, software en data worden beschikbaar gesteld.

Voor wie is deze cursus bedoeld?
  • Kartografen die gebruik maken van GIS data.
  • Bestaande MAPublisher gebruikers die een overzicht van de nieuwe mogelijkeden willen krijgen of hun kennis van het pakket op een hoger niveau willen brengen.
  • GIS-medewerkers die hoge kwaliteit kaartproduktie nastreven.
  • Iedereen die kaarten maakt en gebruik zou willen gaan maken van de mogelijkheden van Illustrator en MAPublisher.

Cursusleiders
Deze cursus wordt verzorgd door Hans van der Maarel en Joke Rerink. Beide hebben al vele jaren ervaring in het gebruik van Illustrator en MAPublisher. De cursus wordt in het Nederlands gegeven.

Lokatie
De cursus wordt gehouden in het Golden Tulip hotel te Zevenbergen.

Meer over MAPublisher
MAPublisher voor Illustrator is een krachtige plug-in waarmee het mogelijk wordt om in Illustrator gebruik te maken van GIS data om hoogwaardige kaarten te produceren. Ontwikkeld als plug-in voor Adobe Illustrator en Macromedia Freehand biedt het een combinatie van de superieure grafische kwaliteiten van deze pakketten en de schaalvastheid en het gebruik van attributen uit de GIS-wereld.

MaPublisher is a very useful tool when using with Illustrator. I have especially found that MaPublisher is a time saver when it comes to may tasks such as text, as an example labeling streets can be a headache running the risk of mis-spelling & constantly deleting & adding fit text to path selection tools. However the downside is the costly price tag that comes with it when considering that Illustrator by itself costs nearly $600 to get, then buying MaPublisher for what? $1200. What I don't understand is why doesn't Avenza doesn't sell compoments for lesser the amount & the full package as it currently is in the form of a bundle?

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

That's something you'd have to ask Avenza about. I have no influence on their pricing policy.
