Publish your maps in PDF coming soon!
A pair of AMLs that makes it easy to create and publish single or multi-page map-books in PDF format, without investing in Adobe Distiller or ArcPress. This toolkit is particularly good for distributing maps electronically, either for proofing or for printing, and is a great way to assemble electronic map-books containing many similar maps. Because PDF is compressed internally, the files are small, and because it is so easy to view them, PDF files are ideal for retaining reference and archival copies of your maps. These tools can also be used to print a series of maps at once, bypassing the laborious ArcPress dialog under Windows NT.
NT only, but could easily be modified to work under UNIX.
