New Jersey, USA, 13 July 2006: MapText’s cartographic labeling software, Label-EZ 4.8, now offers the ability to output the fully symbolized features and the placed labels into Adobe Illustrator CS2. A post-editing plug-in called Label-Edit helps in map finishing. Label-Edit is also available for Adobe Illustrator 9, 10, and CS1.
MapText’s software system, Label-EZ, places text fully automatically on maps of any scale and style according to the highest cartographic standards and precise user preferences extremely quickly. Label-EZ provides users with conflict detection across all layers of information. Users can set placement rules for individual layers and also control the relative priority among layers.
The increase in popularity of Adobe Illustrator CS2 prompted MapText to develop a compatible interface between CS2 and Label-EZ. MapText believes that users will benefit significantly from this addition specifically in terms of map quality and production speed.
