    Hi. I am a member of a kayaking club in Australia. The kayaking courses are just simple Google Map printouts. I would like a website that allows be to copy the map into an editing program so I can enlarge the canal system to make it easier to read. Any suggestions?

    Wouldn't a screen capture work for that?

    Or zoom further in Google Maps before printing.

    Snipping Tool should do the job for you (or an old-fashioned screen capture).

    I will have a look to see if I can enlarge, print, then tape them together making a poster like size of 4 A4's like a composite.
    Will revert after I tried some of your welcomed suggestions.
    Thanks

    Maybe go to a printer who can print it on larger and more heavy paper so it stands up to getting wet.

    You do not want tape coming off and your want ink that will not wash off. Lots of ink I seen that people use on home printer are water base inks and that is no good so check your printer ink if you print it out.
