Some tips for viewing maps:

When you click on the "thumbnail" image of each map, it will display the map, which may start out as a large image, then suddently go smaller. This is perfectly normal. Put your mouse over the image and you will see a small magnifying glass icon. Click on the image with the icon over it and the map will become large again. Then you can use the horizontal and vertical scroll bars to view the sections of the map you need to see.

If you prefer, download the map by right-clicking on it with your mouse. When a pop-up menu appears, select "Save image as" and then save it to some place on the hard drive of your computer. Afterward you can print the image using image editing software such as Photoshop or Paint Shop or if you have Windows XP or Windows 7, you can print the image directly from Windows Explorer.
