How about Manifold + Corel Draw? Thanks in advance to all.
If you're not using MapPublisher the workflow is pretty much the same: export to .ai or .pdf --> import the file to DRAW / Illy and then do with the vector wahtever you want to . Scripting all the common tasks helps a lot...
Here you'llfind some examples of manifold2DRAW 'approach' : http://www.cartotalk...?showtopic=2480

I used CorelDraw 9 & 11 during my school years at COGS very extensively. The pen tool in Illy is to the Bezier tool in CorelDraw but ultimately if you want to have the eventual functionality of MaPublisher you better make the switch. I know Corel is far more cheaper then Adobe but trust me when I say that although CorelDraw makes good products I would say Adobe has more to offer & is worth every cent. I have noticed a huge difference, Corel crashes a lot more then Illustrator.
I used CorelDraw at Univ. of Toronto and at that time, I believe it was Version 10. When I was at SSFC, we used Illustrator and MAPublisher exclusively. To this day, I only use ArcGIS and Illustrator (and Photoshop).
In practice, it's probably close to the same thing since CorelDraw and Illustrator are competing products. So as long as you can convert exported AI files from your GIS software, then CorelDraw will probably do just fine.
