I am trying to see if this new ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Creative Cloud is in some sense competing with Avenza's MAPublisher tools. I couldn't get ESRI to give me an answer but I believe the functionality is somewhat the same from what I have seen thus far. Can anyone give me any further consultation whether MAPublisher has tools or functionality that ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Creative Cloud would not have?
Here is the response from Avenza Systems--the makers of MAPublisher. Obviously a little biased (it doesn't name anything that Esri's tool does that MAPublisher cannot), and it was published on Jul 6, 2017-- so a little out of date.
I would be interested in seeing a blog from Esri's prospective for comparison.
