The new Mountain High Maps® Frontiers Edition version 2.5 contains a global collection of 71 fully editable world and country geopolitical vector maps complete with the same comprehensive layers of editable place and feature names as the full Mountain High Maps or Studio Editions. These top quality, highly detailed outline maps will load instantly into any of the popular graphics applications where line styles, width and color can be customized along with country fills and place names, or they can be imported directly into page layout or presentation applications. FreeHand, Illustrator and Corel users will find that the huge number of selectable and editable layers will greatly enhance their map customization and productivity. Mountain High Maps® Frontiers Edition Version 2.5 is competitively priced as this hybrid Mac/Windows CD-ROM also includes the full suite of Photoshop paths to make it easy to create customizable bitmap versions of all the maps if required. Note that you do not need Frontiers when purchasing Mountain High Maps, Studio or Continental Editions since it already is an integral part of these products.
