    Exclamation Map Detail Problem

    Hello.

    I am trying to create a map of the 48 states using shaded regions to identify the hispanic population divided by total population. I am doing it by zip code.

    The problem is, when i zoom out to the full 48 states view i can't see any of the shading.

    I need to print the map at 48 states zoom, with the zip code showing up in high detail. How would i do this?

    Also, is there any way to get an updated 2006 or 2007 demographics database?

    EDIT: Is there a way to zoom in close, but select and copy the whole US map, so i can see the shading and paste it into Photoshop or something and print from there?

    Re: Map Detail Problem

    Zip Code is a bit low level to view at the national level, maybe try doing a map by state - or county?


    I don't think if you zoom in you can copy the whole US map.


    There is a guy in here who has done a lot of work with tiling and getting detailed large maps out of MapPoint, you might contact him:

    Re: Map Detail Problem

    Thanks, Eric.

    Yep, I can do that. It will definately be 36 x 48 or larger,
    but you'll be more than pleased with the result.
