For easier GIS printing on your map plotter, follow these tips. For example, make sure that your print drivers and software will be compatible with the company’s applications. In some cases, you might be held back because of compatibility issues with older technology. Next, preview the size of the print in advance to avoid the need for an unnecessary reprint. You can define the print settings like rotation, scaling and media selection to remove the need for a print-ready file at a specific size.
You will also want to look at media handling. When printing a map or other GIS data, how will the machine handle the paper? It matters more than you might realize, and if you share your plotter with multiple users, you want to maintain organization. If you have a newer plotter, it may provide you with a back channel communication between the print driver and the plotter.
