Example Map

Drawing a County Map

  1. Maps are US $5.00 (50 credits) each.

    An account and purchase is required.

  2. Select Country, Province/State and then County. A small image of your county will appear.
  3. Click Draw.
  4. A PDF will eventually appear in your browser.
  5. Maps take from 5 seconds to 3 minutes to draw. This is normal.
  6. Save the PDF to your local hard drive.
  7. Open the PDF with Adobe.
  8. Maps are clearer in Adobe.

Printing with Adobe

Adobe has a feature to split the map across multiple sheets of paper.

Adobe calls this feature "Tiling" "Poster" or "Banner" depending on the version.

Adobe Reader 9 or earlier does not have this feature.

You can adjust the size of the original to best fit the paper and specify how much each "tile" overlaps.

You can then fit the individual pages together a full map.

  1. Choose File -> Print.
  2. From the Page Scaling pop-up menu, select one of the following options:
    • Poster
    • Tile Large Pages Tile only the pages that are larger than the paper.
    • Tile All Pages Tile all the pages in the PDF file
    Different Versions of Adobe call the tiling option different things. You will know you have the right one when the print preview shows the map chopped into individual pages.
  3. Set the following options as needed:
    • Tile Scale

      Printing at 100% produces a map where 1 inch = 1 mile.

      Printing at 50% also produces a good map with a 1/2" per mile scale.

    • Overlap Determines the amount each tile overlaps adjacent tiles.
    • Cut Marks Adds guide marks to each page to help you trim the overlap.
    • Labels Adds the filename and page number on each "tile".
  4. Print
