ArcGIS Publisher is an extension to the ArcGIS Desktop that lets you easily share and distribute your GIS maps and data with anyone.

Use it to create Published Map Files (PMFs) that can be viewed, explored, or printed by anyone with the free ArcReader application.

  • Easily provide interactive maps to your clients.
  • Protect your maps, including cartography and data, from inappropriate use.
  • Control how your published maps are used and who uses them.
  • Create rich interactive maps that meet your clients' needs.
  • Provide efficient and controlled access to your enterprise GIS data.
  • Easily package the required data and maps for distribution.
  • Build custom map viewers for your maps.

ArcReader is a free, easy-to-use desktop mapping application that allows users to view, explore, and print maps and globes. Anyone with ArcReader can view high-quality interactive maps authored by a higher-level ArcGIS Desktop product and published with the ArcGIS Publisher extension.

  • View, navigate, and print published ArcGIS maps using ArcReader (.pmf files).
  • Deploy your GIS data to novices and professionals alike.
  • Zoom, pan, and switch between map and page layout view.
  • Communicate more efficiently with the ability to graphically mark up maps.
  • Print published map and globe documents including all layer symbology and cartographic map elements on any supported printer.
  • Create custom ArcReader applications and embed ArcReader capabilities into existing applications.

layer files
Layer Files
  • Layer Files reference geographic data stored on a disk. You can think of them as a cartographic view of your geographic data.
  • They are separate files on a disk and have a .lyr extension.
  • Layer a reference to a data source such as a coverage, geodatabase feature class, raster and so on.
  • In ArcGIS 9, layers can be used as inputs to geoprocessing tools. Layers can be stored in map documents (.mxd) or saved individually as layer files (.lyr).
