I recently came across a concern when converting Shape (.shp) to Adobe Illustrator (.eps).
The problem was converting the Shape point data into EPS - it was the first time I have encountered it as previously it has been linear features.
I was using the FME EPS writer which converted the Shape point symbols to a text. I wasn't confident about the location of the text in the EPS (justification, symbol, text size etc) and was in a hurry. So I went back to FME and created small polygon features from the points.
I will revisit this in FME and check the position of the text symbol in the EPS to know if it is accurate.
In the meantime I was wondering how people get GIS data into Illustrator:
- EPS writer in ArcGIS
and I'd be interested to hear any pros/cons for each especially methods using FME.
