SO, YOU'RE COMPUTER PHOBIC AND THINK THIS IS ALL TOO MUCH TROUBLE TO MESS WITH? Don't lose use of your land by letting the greens strip away your assets!! Ask your grandkids for computer help to view and print the map!
This map is available for VIEWING ON THE WEB and PRINTING in these formats. Don't just try to print the map you are viewing on the screen. Be aware that images prepared for web viewing are not the best for printing which has different requirements. Also, it's best to not try to print in black and white from a color image. You will get better quality by using the image specially prepared for the printing method you use. Also, if you try to print oversized images only intended for web viewing you probably won't get anything usable. Only a small part will print.
JPG files are smaller and better for viewing and navigating around with your web browser. They can also be saved to your hard drive and opened in your graphics program for printing (see more below). If you don't have or want to deal with a graphics program then use the PDF files. You will need to have the free Acrobat reader loaded (see Printing Tips for more info). The main advantage of PDF files is that they allow printing of a small area on a very large image and are usually easier to print.
Internet Explorer 6 and perhaps other web browsers will allow you to magnify JPG's and navigate around one that is larger then the screen. After the JPG is completely loaded you should see an icon in the lower right and if you put your cursor over it, it will say "expand to regular size". Press and it will do so. But you may not be able to print such an expanded image. See Printing tips for more information.
IF YOU ARE ON A DIAL UP CONNECTION
You will get the best quality for printing if you download the biggest size PDF files you have patience for even though 56k is slow. Here are typical download time estimates:

Find a store in your local Yellow Pages under the "Copying & Duplicating Service" category. Ask if they can print you a large format color poster from a digital file on the internet. FedExKinkos can do this. Their prices may be higher then others so it may pay to check around.
