Regional conservation group now distributing its maps to mobile devices


TORONTO, (May 7, 2012) - Avenza Systems Inc., producers of MAPublisher® cartographic software for Adobe® Illustrator® and Geographic Imager® geospatial tools for Adobe Photoshop®, announces that the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference has officially enrolled as a vendor in the Avenza Map Store, accessible through the award-winning PDF Maps app. In partnership with Avenza, the Trail Conference will make its popular series of over 50 hiking, trail and general recreation maps, covering a network of over 1,800 miles of public trails in the New York-New Jersey metropolitan region, available to recreationalists and adventurers for use on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches.

“We are extremely delighted to have this well-known and time-honoured organization participate in the Avenza Map Store and are very excited to make their amazing series of maps available to mobile users,” said Ted Florence, President of Avenza Systems Inc. “The PDF Maps app is a great platform and many organizations are now seeing how easy it is to make their maps accessible to mobile consumers. We invite all map publishers to become a part of our vendor network.”

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.

“This exciting use platform and distribution system for geo-referenced maps is perfect for putting our highly-detailed maps into the hands of our members for use on their mobile devices,” said Edward Goodell, Executive Director of the Trail Conference. “As more and more end users opt for and prefer to use maps on their mobile devices rather than paper it is essential that organizations like ours adopt powerful and cost-effective methods of delivering and using maps digitally. Avenza’s PDF Maps fits that bill.”

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 many free maps can be downloaded at no cost through the PDF Maps in-app map store.
