Avenza Systems Inc., the developer of MAPublisher map production software and MAPdataUSA shapefile data for the US, has announced the release of MAPdata World, a 3 part set of royalty-free GIS map data covering the world at 1:15 million scale.
This detailed world vector dataset was initially created by Avenza UK reseller and digital data experts, The XYZ Digital Map Co., Ltd., and was specially created for Avenza and the MAPublisher user.
MAPdata World comes complete with ESRI Arcview project and shapefiles, MapInfo tab and workspace files and a set of MAPublisher-optimized mid/mif files, which have been fine tuned and simplified for optimum performance with MAPublisher, whether working in Adobe Illustrator or Macromedia FreeHand. Vector data layers include towns, roads, railways, rivers, lakes, administration areas and lines, symbols and physical names. Raster contour and hillshading layers are also available. This is a royalty-free data set that allows for the unrestricted use of all files for the design and creation of maps for print and/or electronic distribution.
