Building a PDF Map
With Acrobat Pro Extended (Windows), you can import a map image and create geospatially enabled PDFs. You can georegister a map by using its boundary coordinates and the projection scale on which the map is based.
- Select the Geospatial Registration tool on the Analysis toolbar, and right-click an area on the map to start the Geospatial Registration wizard. Type a name for the map and click Next.
- Define the neatline (boundaries) for the map you want to produce. Click at each of four corners to add an indicator, and continue to draw the shape. Double-click to end the neatline. To use the entire page, select Use Page Bounds as Neatline.
- The Input Registration Points screen of the wizard opens automatically. Click a point on your neatline and type the latitude and longitude values in the Input Points fields for the point. Repeat for the other three boundary points. Click Next.
- Select a registration system from the drop-down list, and specify default units of measure.
- Click OK to move to the end of the wizard. The Geospatial Location tool and Measurement tool are now enabled to interact with geospatial content in the document.
