Guide to Publishing Digital Maps

In this presentation, Bridger explains the process of publishing a digital recreational map through the Avenza Maps App to create a seamless digital map suitable for offline use. Using Avenza's vendor site, account managers can upload a GeoTIFF or GeoPDF file. Following the upload, Avenza's automated system assesses the file's attributes and georeferencing to ensure compliance and subsequently sends a confirmation email to the account manager. Once all requirements are met, the map is published on the Avenza Maps App, allowing users to download and utilize it.
