The ArcGIS Publisher packaging capability allows you to easily create a redistributable bundle of data and published maps.

The packaging process involves selecting one or more published maps and defining the properties of the data package (location of package, data formats, and clip option). Data can be packaged in its original format or industry-standard formats that can be accessed by other applications, or it can be stored in a locked, highly compressed format for widespread distribution.

The target data formats for the package that are supported include

  • Esri Shapefile
  • Personal Geodatabase
  • Compressed and Locked

Create a redistributable bundle of your maps and data for use with ArcReader.
