TECHNICAL NOTES

The original Atlas Sheets were created in Adobe Illustrator (AppleMac version 6) and CorelDRAW (PC version 7) vector formats from data digitised and edited within MapData software and saved as HPGL plot files and ArcInfo generate files.
The final vector files were directly converted to raster Gif format for these web pages.

I have also been able to transfer the files into ArcInfo, ArcView and MapInfo GIS packages and graphics packages such as CorelDraw and Macromedia Freehand using MaPublisher from Avenza.

Please contact me if you require access to the digital vector database
or wish to have some of the maps customised for publication, web pages or GIS applications.

Please note that the Gif file for a full Atlas Sheet is approx. 5Mb, compressed to under 300k. It may take some time to initially download but will be accessed at speed once cached in memory for viewing.
