I am getting hit up on a daily basis about how long it take to make maps from start to finish, and I was wondering what other peoples time would be for this set up:
recieve DTED, shapefiles for an area 900,000 square kilometers
generate from that a 1:500,000 1:250,000 1:100,000 1:50,000 CADRGs and 1:250,000 printable maps.  I use ArcInfo to create tiff files from the mxd files then using ERDAS Imagine, I mosaic the tiff files and export a CADRG and I do all this in 25 days.
