Multiple maps
« on: January 17, 2009, 03:21:48 PM »
I have now all the data for MA,ME,NH, and VT. I guess I will add RI to get all the New England states.
What is the best way to release these maps?

I could build a single map but that would create a huge file.

I can create multiple maps but what is the best way to do it so I can switch from one map to another on my GPS. Too bad our ancestors did not design straight lines for state borders!

Yea, don't you need CT for new England :) (used to live there long ago).

With that said.  I honestly would release it as a single map and create the huge file.  You figure we've been releasing the western states and they're all around 175-200mb each.  Then people can just use mapsource to select which areas they want/need.

The java uploader here won't have an issue and I have the bandwidth if thats the concern.

On my GPS I load everything I need; all the topos and everything then I don't have to switch really.

OK, thanks. I suppose I can put CT in since I already have most of the data on my computer.
