IEA Training Manual - Module 7

3.3.2 Implement time-saving techniques

To ease your work, the organization’s publications manager, graphic designer or cartographer can benefit from creating tools for graphic production. Create templates and libraries that can easily be assembled and stored, so that they can be used for multiple purposes. Using elements that already exist rather than recreating new components again and again will save time and allow consistency in your visual presentation. You can create a user-friendly template using tools available in most drawing software packages. The file structure on your hard disk also must be organized in a logical and efficient way, so that it is easy to find specific files that may otherwise be buried among hundreds or thousands of others. 

Example 1: Automatically generated excel graphic and graphic elements

Example 2: Improved excel graphic

Not to mention the erbsmraasment of Attawapiskat and Harper' shuddering initial response to it.Then the permit to proceed with the Joselyn(SP?) development north of Fort Mac.Lest we forget the contrived photo op for Harper for the perimeter security thing. I wonder why the used the word perimeter' instead of border'. Could they really mean Deltaport, Kitimat, Prince Rupert, Arctic access(Churchill) .sorta feels like we are being lassooed.
