How to print all this map large scale?

Here is a map of Dublin click here

When the image first loads it is a small scale. However, if you wait a moment or two an icon appears in the bottom right hand corner. When you click on this the same map appears but at a much larger scale and it is much easier to see the detail. How can you print the whole map at this scale?

If you go to File > Print it just prints the area from A1 to C5 (approx). I realise that probably more than one sheet would be required to print the whole map.

The only way I can think of is to take screen dumps of the large scale map a section at a time but is there a more elegant solution??

That is the strangest map I have ever seen.

Do you have access to a printer that will print on A3 paper? e.g. at work.

... here is the correct one click here

I don't have access to a printer that will print on A3 paper so, in any event, I would have to print it in sections.

If you right click on the image you can save it as a picture it is a JPG then you can chop it as you want afterwards. Or take it to Staples, or similar and they could print it for you.

If you down load Screen Rip 32 from click here Its freeware.
You can do full screen grab quite accurately. I use this to print out walking maps from Streetmap.com and if you leave an overlap it is easy to glue the pieces into a full map.

"if you wait a moment or two an icon appears in the bottom right hand corner. When you click on this the same map appears but at a much larger scale"

I suspect you are using Internet Explorer as your browser, and what you are seeing is the button that enables you to see the picture at "normal" size, with regard to pixels on the screen...

There is an option using Internet Explorer, (version 6), to have pictures "shink to fit" in the broswer window.

If you have this on and a large picture, such as this one, is downloaded, the picture starts to appear at it's "normal" size and when it's all downloaded it "shrinks to fit" and the icon you refer to appears.

It doesn't help with your printing problem, but I though an explanation might be helpful... (assuming I'm correct of course!)

that the icon/button in question undoes the "shrink to fit"!

Check your printer preferences to see if you have the poster printing option. This usual allows you to print a picture on 4,9,16 sheets of A4.

If you do have this option save the map to your hard drive. Open with windows picture and fax viewer or similar, go to print, change printer preference to poster printing. All you will need to do is trim the edges and glue the pages together.

Some print or copy shops will do this for you from a clip drive or cd but they will charge approx £20 to £30 depending on size. Hence the reason why at work they invested in the kit to do ours in house.
