Plainsboro, NJ – July 13, 2006. MapText’s premier cartographic labeling software, Label-EZ 4.8, now offers the ability to output the fully symbolized features and the placed labels into Adobe Illustrator CS2. A post-editing plugin called Label-Edit is provided to users for easy map finishing. Label-Edit is also available for Adobe Illustrator 9, 10, and CS1.
The increase in popularity of Adobe Illustrator CS2 prompted MapText to develop a compatible interface between CS2 and Label-EZ. MapText believes that users will benefit significantly from this addition specifically in terms of map quality and production speed. So far, several leading map publishers have benefited from Label-EZ and its output to Adobe Illustrator.
MapText’s market-leading software system, Label-EZ, places text fully automatically on maps of any scale and style according to the highest cartographic standards and precise user preferences extremely quickly and cost-effectively. This results in enormous time and cost savings for users. Label-EZ provides users with conflict detection across all layers of information. Users can set placement rules for individual layers and also control the relative priority among layers.
