As well, there is a short news video from the recent ESRI User Conference available here:
As we approach the release of our app on the iTunes Apps store, we require a library of maps that users can download directly to their Apple iOS device. As such, we are announcing a "call for maps" and setting up an Avenza geospatial PDF warehouse where all of this can happen.
Anyone who wishes to submit a map can do so using this form: http://www.avenza.co...-app/submission
This is a great opportunity to expose your cartographic creations to the world in a new way. Proper credit will be given for each map listed in our warehouse.
When considering your map(s) for submission please note the following:
- All maps submitted using this form will be made available to users at no cost. If you do not want your map distributed for free do not submit it.
- The geospatial PDF must be properly and accurately georeferenced and comply with the Adobe Acrobat PDF 1.7 specification (such as maps produced using MAPublisher or ArcGIS).
- The geospatial PDF must be optimized. In Adobe Acrobat, use Advanced > PDF Optimizer to create a balance of small file size and good quality.
- The maximum PDF size accepted is 5 MB at this moment.
- GeoPDF files created using the proprietary TerraGo authoring system are not currently supported. For more information about the difference between Adobe geospatial PDF and GeoPDF, please refer to http://en.wikipedia..../Geospatial_PDF.
- Maps do not need to have been created using MAPublisher or any other Avenza product. Any geospatial PDF map that conforms to the aforementioned specifications can be submitted regardless of the manner in which it was created.
