“Learning Cartography would take time, let’s simply print from Google Maps.”
In this modern era who would carry a paper map to navigate? Still, you may need a printed map to work on a project or just to put it on the Wall.
The easiest way someone can tell you to take a ScreenShoot from Google Maps. But I’m gonna share with you How to Print in High Resolution, even without pressing the Print Screen key on your keyboard. No matter if you don’t have a PC, you can still do this on Ipad or Android.
The process is quite easy, just like a piece of cake. Instead of directly get the Printout, you can download the map as a PDF for future use.
So Bud, let’s dive into the Tutorial…
How to Print from Google Maps with Directions
In this tutorial, I’m using a PC and Chrome Browser. You may go with any device but must use a good Browser.
- Launch a Browser, then search for “Google Maps”
Once the search result appears, Open the Google Maps site.
For Phone users: When you enter into the browser, make sure you have turned on Desktop Mode. This will make the process easy and accessible for you.
Couldn’t find the site?

- Define the Area and Direction
Here you have to define a specific area and directions.
You can even print the map without directions. Then just skip the process of setting Directions.
How to add directions and over multiple locations?
It’s the same as before.
To select the first location, click on its name. Then a window will appear on the left side, click on Directions Icon.
( Click on the Direction icon beside the Search bar. It opens a new window, where you have to provide the details of Starting location and End location of the direction route.

Now it will ask you to define another point of destination. You can do so by clicking on that location.

We can even add multiple locations. Just click on that “Plus icon add destination”. You can see a big black and white-coloured circle for each location you have set.
Keep in mind only the visible area of the map will be printed. To expand more areas Zoom Out the view.
After you have set the overall view, now we can process it for print.
Click on the triple line icon at the top-left corner. Now select “Print”. A new window will ask you to enter some Notes, but I found it useless.
So again click on the blue-coloured Print button.
