Streamlining Processes Towards High-Quality Cartography

Download to read offline

Cartography is both the science and the art of visually representing geographical data. It promotes a better understanding of our data, and ultimately, data-driven business decisions.

GIS tools produce excellent maps. But taking your cartography to the next level requires a vector graphics editor - even if it’s just for a few finishing touches - and that can be a tedious, manual effort. Using FME and Avenza as part of the process, you can eliminate the struggles of high-quality map creation. You’ll save many hours of work, leaving you more time for the fun, creative aspects of your cartography.

Join us and special guest speakers Hans van der Maarel from Red Geographics and Nick Burchell from Avenza to learn how FME shines as part of a high-end map production workflow. During the hour, we’ll walk you through:
- An overview of MAPublisher’s extensive cartographic capabilities
- An overview of FME and its basic cartographic capabilities, including the Illustrator format writer
- How Avenza’s MAPublisher integrates FME with Adobe Illustrator directly
- The power of automation to achieve faster map production

Don’t miss out on the chance to learn how you can make your maps with more precision, speed, and style than ever. See you there!

  26. 26. Unrivaled Data Support
  27. 27. This is our source data: How can FME help? Regardless of format, FME can easily read, reproject, and write the data to eps for use in Illustrator (or any other system).
  28. 28. This is our source data: How can FME help? Regardless of format, FME can easily read, reproject, and write the data to eps for use in Illustrator (or any other system). But the direct results are not especially good. The data is not ideal for Illustrator. It has “aggregate” objects and too many vertices.
  29. 29. This is our source data (Shapefile) How can FME help? FME can easily read, reproject, and write the data to eps for use in Illustrator. But the results are not especially good. The data is not ideal for Illustrator. It has “aggregate” objects and too many vertices.
  30. 30. How can FME help? FME easily solves those problems with some simple transformers. We add more data, apply a basic colour, and the results are a good base to work with in Illustrator.

  34. 34. WE OFTEN HAVE TO MAKE A LOT OF MAPS IN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME
  35. 35. Which is great! We love making maps!
  36. 36. BUT… MAKING A LOT OF MAPS CAN TAKE A LOT OF TIME AND CAN BE VERY TEDIOUS
  37. 37. Automating the mapping process is great but… We don’t want to sacrifice quality!
  38. 38. Demo Introduction The Goal We need to produce a large number of maps. All the same style but different areas. The Obstacles This is a tedious process, which has a high risk of human errors The Solution The combination of MAPublisher and FME, through the FME Auto plugin The Result The repetitive tasks have been automated, per map processing time is “a couple of seconds”
  39. 39. Demo
  40. 40. Tips & Tricks Not everything can be automated, but thatʼs okay! Automate the parts that are tedious and repetitive and therefore error-prone Save time for the artistic, fun, parts of cartography!
  41. 41. The power of automation to achieve faster map production
  42. 42. Demo
  43. 43. Don’t waste the value of your data by keeping it stuck.
