Want me to add GPS numbers to these maps?

Sorry about the slight delay - Your request has been granted. :)

Here is the aerial photo of Thomas Landing that includes the area a little south of it.

(it's the same link as before - I just named the new photo the same name as the last one. The small one is gone)

:( Wow great pic first off. So close I can almost see the ranch. :? By arial terms I need it a little farther south of the main road you see to the south. That's the road that takes you to Thomas. I'm south through the trees a little more. But again very nice pic.

Image

Here I am holding the print of the big map for the ride on the Kissimmee Chain. It just came in the mail. I ordered it from a large format printing place - I uploaded the file, and they printed it the same day and FedEx'd it out the following morning.

But I must say, it came out GREAT!!! The resolution is so high it looks like a normal camera shot. You can get out a magnifying glass and see some pretty fine detail. The size is about 27"x27" and it is laminated in a matte finish. Very easy to read.

Once again, here is the link to the map that I had printed:
http://homepage.mac.com/moodfood/.Pictu ... ainGPS.jpg
But please note that this is NOT the actual file that I printed. For the print, I reduced the size by half, which doubled the resolution. If they didn't save the image, contact me and I can upload it again - easily.

I'm thinking about making aerial photos of all my favorite boating areas and getting a whole set of my own custom maps to carry aboard.

Looking forward to letting everyone see and use the map from base camp at the milk bus. :)

Windows or Internet Explorer is resizing the over sized image to fit into the window. There may be a place in PREFERENCES to turn that feature off. I'm not a PC user so not sure exactly how to do that. (I'm on a Mac computer)

There is also a possibility that you can Save To Disk, and then open the image in another program.

Rick is up to speed with the PC tricks. Maybe he'll chime in about this. Anyone else?

LOL... That part never occured to me. Either I have a clean, naive mind, or that sort of stuff is no problem for me. ;) But funny either way. :)

When my file does that, I keep double clicking until this little symbol with a 4 directional arrow. Click on that and the picture gets large again.

That little symbol Adam mentioned comes up for me by moving the mouse over the image & holding it still (Internet Explorer 6).

Image resizing can be turned off permanently by going to the Tools pull down:

Tools-->
Internet Options-->
Advanced-->
Scroll down to "Multimedia" & unclick the "Enable Automatic Image Resizing" box then press "OK".

It'd be a similiar process on other browser's too.

BigD - Time is running out to get it in time for the ride. Although I'm going to bring this one, & nail it to a tree or something at the milk bus for everyone to use while there.

Try calling them @ 877.588.4417 (toll free) and ask about the aerial map recently ordered by Matt Hasty. I told them that there may be others in the airboat club who wanted this print - so they may have the image still in their computer. Be sure to get CLEAR about the shipping time. The lamination is optional and was $2 per square foot extra. You could also order this image on gator board or foam-core or even transparent film.

I got second day shipping, and it turned out to be about a $40 map.

I don't make any money of this. I'd not mind getting into some sort of mapping business though. :)

if you want another view-check out Google earth
http://earth.google.com/
download the program to use their viewer, the demo is pretty cool.
the only drawback is you need a hi-speed connection to use it
