It depends on what tools you have available to you. Here are some
options that vary by tools
ArcGIS Desktop Alone
You can convert it to a jpg and then Georeference it. Then just heads-up
digitize layers you need or use jpg as a backdrop for new data.
ArcGIS Desktop with ArcScan Extension
Same as above except use the ArcScan Extension to perform a raster to
ArcGIS Desktop and Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator
Convert PDF to AI file in Photoshop and then convert AI file to DXF
file in Illustrator. Bring DXF file into ArcGIS and convert to shapefile
I am sure there are other ways as well using other tools but these are a
few ideas I came up with off the cuff.

Subject: shrug-l: PDF map to GIS
I have a basic PDF map (8-1/2 x 11) that I want to get into ArcGIS to do
some analysis. Besides hand digitizing, does anyone know of an "elegant"
way to do this?
