Recently some customers have asked us if they can export components of their reports to produce high quality print materials. Some people wanted to create large format posters, export vector versions of their maps and charts and produce graphics for exhibit posters and stands. Others wanted in-house designers to be able to include their maps within company brochures, or reports for meetings and presentations. What they told us was that for some purposes their reports don't always need to be interactive. So how can you do this, well the following tutorial is to help you extract components of your reports. It is aimed at your graphics guy/team, the creative agency you work with who liaises with the printer who ultimately produces what you need at print press quality. Before we proceed it is important to note that for this tutorial you will need to employ a combination of software tools and not just InstantAtlas. So for the purpose of this lesson I would recommend that you or your designer use Right click the map area and select ‘Print Preview’. In the drop down select ‘Map’, select ‘Resize to fit page’, ‘Print As Vector (best quality)’ and then click ‘Print’. In the Advanced Options select paper size ‘A4’, and in PostScript Output Options select ‘Encapsulated PostScript (EPS)’. You now have a high res vector image that your designer and printer can use for CYMK printing. Please note this tutorial uses the map component of an InstantAtlas report but you can also repeat this process with: and download a wide range of support resources and access a searchable knowledgebase. If these resources do not provide a solution, please contact your Source.
