Custom Maps

Postby fjacky » Sun Feb 24, 2013 10:31 am

Hey there,

Looking to get a large custom satellite map of a specific area (cottage area)

Anyone know of a website/store that I can get this done?

Can't get what you need from Google? Their satellite maps are pretty good and you can really zoom in with them. As long as you're not looking for top secret government facilities, that is. ;)

They are out of France... was hoping for something somewhat local. GTA.

I did email them to see if they could help me out though. Thanks

Why don't you go see the geo guys. You can get anything you want.

I would be interested in what you end up with. It would be nice to have a poster sized image at the hunt camp. Also, maybe someone will correct me but you can't print from google maps-satellite view. It always reverts to the map when I do it.

Go to google maps and find what you need. Save it as a high resolution jpg.

Go to fedex kinkos (http://www.fedexoffice.ca/) and order the print. Or find a location and bring it in. If you try to order online it looks like a 3x4 foot print is about $130.
