More about geospatial PDF

Geospatial PDF is a PDF document that contains geospatial information such as real world locations, a coordinate system and GIS attributes. Geospatial PDF documents can be created in GIS applications such as ArcGIS, MapInfo and Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop with the aid of the MAPublisher and Geographic Imager plugins, respectively. The geospatial data contained in a geospatial PDF document may be accessed and used (for example to locate a specific point or measure distances) without the aid of any additional plugins, using tools found natively within Adobe Reader and Acrobat.
