    Exporting maps into a graphic application

    i am trying to figure out the best way to export a map from ArcGis into Coreldraw. What is the best way to go about this? I have seen some stuff in the ESRI Map Book that uses corel for post processing and such. i am just trying to get a better cartographic look which i can't seem to achieve in arcview.

    note to mods if this is not the appropriate place to post this feel free to move it.

    I can't help you with the exporting. I seem to think there is a function to write the map as a TIF image? I have used Corel for mapping, though, and would agree that you can get a much nicer looking map, especially if it is going to be widely used like a street map.

    If your using ArcMap-ArcView, go to File: Export Map, and then save it as the type of file you want it as (i.e. jpg. gif. bmp. tif. etc.). If you want to catch the whole area, make sure you zoom out far enough, or if you just want a certian area zoom in to that part. Make sure you do that before going to file: export map.

    If you have some cash available and are willing to switch to Adobe Illustrator, you should check out mappublisher at www.avenza.com
