    Does anyone know how I can pull up a map of a farm and then order it in a poster size print . I have messed around with several satelitte map places, but I just cant figure it out. Thanks.

    Kinkos? Well wait, do you have the map or do you need that too?

    You may check with your local Iowa State Extension office.

    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Give me the coordinates, some $, and some time, and I will have it for you.

    This is exactly what I get contracted to do.

    Re: Random farm map question

    Here is a photographer in Ames that does aerial photography. $190 an hour. Seems fairly reasonable. I'm sure it would give you a better end product than enlarging from google.

    Prices

    Good group! I have hired them at least a 1/2 dozen times over the last 3 years.

    I am a pilot, so I could always take the photo myself, but I was just looking for something easy. Thanks for all of the help.

    Re: Random farm map question

    Go to Office Max to get the prints. Way cheaper than Kinkos
    We got a photo blown up to 24x36 for about $40. It was over $100 at Kinkos, for worse quality.
