To begin, some interesting news and kudos from Avenza Systems as the company is touting the success of their innovative PDF Maps store (consultants, think business opportunity here) - think iTunes store for mobile maps! This is an awesome revenue generating activity that anyone who creates awesome maps should consider using.
