Create a GeoPDF in ArcGIS

The ArcMap application provides the ability to export our maps to PDF, preserving the vector and raster graphics in a single file, with the ability to store data for georeferencing later.

The usefulness of working with PDF files is the ease of use, independence, simple display, and retains the mapping information.

To export go to the menu File > Export Map, select PDF as the file type and save.
