    Avenza’s Successful PDF Maps App Surpasses 100 Vendors in its Burgeoning Digital Map Store PDF Print E-mail
    GIS News - Geospatial Data
    Written by Avenza Systems Inc.   
    14 February 2012
    Growing Number of Established Map Vendors Select Avenza as its Digital Marketplace for Mobile Devices


    TORONTO, (February 14, 2012) - Avenza Systems Inc., producers of MAPublisher® cartographic software for Adobe® Illustrator® and Geographic Imager® geospatial tools for Adobe Photoshop®, announces its latest achievement for its award-winning PDF Maps app with the number of Avenza Map Store vendors topping 100. Avenza brings mobile map technology to the forefront of Apple iOS devices and map producers are strengthening the trend by offering their once static maps through this new digitial marketplace.

    The PDF Maps app is an all-encompassing solution for the use, distribution and sale of digital versions of paper maps to mobile devices. It includes both an app for consumers to use, discover and purchase maps directly from their devices as well as an in-app store to facilitate the transaction and delivery of maps. Think of it as iTunes or iBooks for maps.

    The Avenza Map Store continues to grow and features tens of thousands of maps authored, distributed and sold by individual cartographers, established map publishers, and government agencies. The in-app marketplace provides a new mobile e-commerce venue that allows those in the industry to have access to more than 200 million Apple iOS users seeking information about specific maps.

    “We're working hard and continuing to build our community of vendors,” said Ted Florence, President of Avenza Systems Inc. “The PDF Maps app is a great platform and many companies are finally seeing how easy it is to make their maps accessible to consumers. We invite all map publishers to become a part of our vendor network.”

    The PDF Maps app recently won the International Map Trade Association best mapping product in the world for 2011. Tens of thousands of users are taking advantage of geospatial technology that allows them to view maps, utilize GPS, measure real world locations, and collect and share placemarks. It has become the ultimate accessory for travelers and adventurers where Internet bandwidth is not available or is cost-prohibitive when cellular roaming.

    PDF Maps is available now on the iTunes App Store free of charge for personal use. For more information about the app, visit the Avenza website at www.avenza.com/pdf-maps. Pricing of each map is set by the publisher and free maps can be downloaded at no cost through the PDF Maps in-app map store.
