Does anyone have experience with Avenza MapPublisher as a go-between for ArcMap and Adobe Illustrator? Specifically in allowing multiple rasters to appear in Illustrator on individual layers with their spatial relationship preserved?

Works a charm, provided the rasters are in the same projection as the vector data (MAPublisher won't reproject rasters)

Thank you; we're hoping our organization will purchase it for our use. I haven't found another method by which I can successfully preserve spatial relationships and separate layers after ArcMap export. Thanks again!

Ditto what Hans said... I do this all the time. It's quick and painless!

I have taken some time to look over this problem, & knowing that's it's a projection problem I have found a possible work around. So this is what I have learned:

First off I'm going to compare two projections: Equidistant Conic in WGS 84 to a Stereoscopic in Amersfoort

Now taking a project example in this Meliske:

For EC WGS84: in Manifold
---------------------------------------
Centre Lat: 52
Centre Lon: 5.40
1st Standard Lat: 52
2nd Standard Lat: 52

For S.A. in Manifold
----------------------------
Centre Lat: 52.156160555555601
Centre Lon: 5.3876388888888904



Now notice that the Stereoscopic projection does not have a 1st & 2nd Standard Lat assigned to it.

When we bring the both rasters in you will quickly notice that the coordinates in the Equidistant Conic are very close to where they should be while the other rasters latitude is incorrect. Now after some analysis I think I may have found the solution to the problem; so here's how I did it:

My lat currently is in the 0.03 range so I opened up the map view & selected specify projection. In my case the projection was already listed as CT_Stereoscopic but with the latitude incorrect I checked under the definition tab & compared it to the definition of the correctly placed raster & found that the 52° standard latitude was listed in the field: latitude of origin. And that's where I found the problem because what I noticed is that the value was read as 0.99999 or something similar to that effect. Once I changed that value to 52° the coordinates were set correctly.

"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."
