Does anyone have a preferred method for blowing up terrain/topo maps to poster-sized? Would like to have one made for my dad for Christmas - I really like the terrain type view on google maps but not having much luck blowing up myself - becomes way too pixelated.

hunting maps.com is easy and reasonable

Mytopo.com is really a good service. I've used them for a couple of aerial photos I've given to my father.

If you’re serious check out “Hunterra” Beautiful custom maps you design.

I use Game Planner Maps. You can customize the boundaries of your map and add any layers you want..... water, topo lines on satellite imagery, unit borders etc and they come in nice waterproof material.

mytopo you can make some really nice custom paper maps. I've had several made. Remember the default is rolled up, so if you want them folded, you have to change the setting. Rolled maps, IMO, are not conducive to hunting.

I'm not sure of the cost of the products you guys are using, but I simply screen shot the image I want on google earth, paste it into Powerpoint, resize the slide to whatever I want (often 36"x48"), save to a thumb drive, and print at the local university. I think they look great! I just made two that were 24"x36" and the total cost was $28. Hard to beat that and like I said, they look really good.

I also use Mytopo. Good results and can get laminated. I've purchased several maps from them with good results.

Nothing compared to the Bing Map "birds Eye View" in my opinion but they recently scrapped that...

So I wound up taking some advice on here and managed to piece together a few screenshot images in PowerPoint and then had a poster print service blow it up and ship it to me. I think it turned out pretty good and wanted to share. Size is 36” x 36”
