I am due to start an assignment that involves designing a computer system for a map making company. They produce standard paper maps to be sold in bookshops in the UK and european market. They also produce special purpose maps for individual demand (i.e. for customers special events). I would like some advice on what the best type/s of software would be suitable for the assignment. Money is no object. Furthermore, advice on the most suitable printers would also be welcome.

As I understand it, the industry standard for presentation is Adobe Illustrator with the MAPublisher (http://www.avenza.com/products.mapub.html)plug-in.

I would expect a GIS, like ArcGIS.
