Adding Google map to the printing material is common these days to guide your audience to your business location.
The normal practice is to take a screenshot of the Google map screen and use it in the art work. I recently used Google map in a flyer design following the above screenshot method, the print result was very poor which ruin the look of the art work. The 72 dpi screenshot was expected to result a poor print but it was beyond the expectations.
This tragedy (just kidding), trigger the quest of getting a 300 DPI high resolution Google Map image for graphic design. I found different methods; the ’Google My Maps’ is the best, quickest and easiest way to get a high resolution 300 dpi map image.
The difference between the normal screen shot 72 dpi map and the 300 dpi high resolution Goole map generated through ‘Google My Maps’.
