What are PDF and GIF files? PDF stands for
"Portable Document File" and is platform independent — it doesn't matter
whether you are using a MacIntosh or PC. PDF files will print out in a high
resolution, which makes it ideal for small type and details on a map.
GIF: Graphic Interchange Format. The leading type of image format specifically for computer use and optimized for use on the Internet. GIF imagery resolution (72 dots per inch or dpi) provides a combination of speed and quality when rendering non-photographic images via a computer monitor. GIF images can be displayed via projector, although Maps101 recommends use of its PDF files for that purpose, and is a standard file format for use with PowerPoint and Photoshop.
