First set your screen resolution to its highest setting then print the map

You will get a dialog box like the attachment.

Paper 11x17

orientation Landscape

output type - Image

This will save the map as an image in a new tab of your browser. From there you can right-click the image and select save-as to save the image to a file. Then take it to you nearest print shop (kinkos - etc) and have a larger image printed.

You can also print the map across multiple pages using the program "paint" which comes with windows. See the link for instructions.
