Adobe Illustrator Format Maps – Layered, Editable – from Map Resources
With Map Resources maps, you get the finest quality digital maps, created with your particular needs in mind. You can use the maps “as-is” or customize them using Adobe Illustrator. Map Resources pioneered the use of Adobe Illustrator format for map-making. By optimizing the tools in Adobe Illustrator, we set the standard for editable vector maps and created a map collection that meets the exacting requirements of graphics professionals. – All Features are in Layers that you can turn on or off. Map features are saved in layers, which makes it easy to turn features on or off so you get to choose which features to include. Up to 75 layers per map, and every one can be manipulated independently. This allows us to provide a wealth of feature layers, without burdening the final map image. – All Areas are complete objects you can select and modify. Every geographic area (eg countries, states, counties) is a separate object you can select and edit. This makes it easy to highlight specific states, geographic regions, cities, or provinces with color or fill patterns. Or create a custom area by selecting a group of objects and copying to new file. – All Lines are fully editable. Every line on a map (eg road, boundary, river) can be edited. You can change color, line width, line style. If you want a dashed boundary, it’s simple to create one. – All Text is fully editable font text (not outlines). Text is font-based, so it’s easy to change the font size and style. You can use your own choice of fonts. You can also add text with your own messaging. – Vector Format for perfect printing. Vector format ensures a high-resolution printout, regardless how much you enlarge the image. – Beautiful Terrain maps. High-res Photoshop file shows shaded relief terrain.
