…then you might like this. For those of you who don’t have Google Earth Pro, I found an application that will automatically download and stitch together Google map tiles (as well as Microsoft maps). This means you can create a high resolution image of your map area, limited only by the maximum zoom level of Google Maps.
Here’s what you need:
gMapMaker, available here. (latest version is 0.7.3.2 as of this writing)
