Bigger Maps

I’m headed to Orlando this Wednesday evening to see 12Stones with my friend Jhon at little place called Backbooth. I know the area pretty well, but it’s been a while since I’ve been in downtown Orlando, so I decided to check a map.

After noticing that YahooMaps didn’t have the directions for the one way streets in downtown Orlando, I decided to plan my route using MapQuest. I’m the type of person who likes to blow the map up as large as possible, and then pick a route myself rather than relying on the computed driving directions. Sadly though, MapQuest seems to have dropped its “Enlarge Map” button.

I could not find any information as to why or when this occurred. But I did manage to find out the query string value that changes the size of the map. So…next time you want to get an enlarged MapQuest map, all you need to do is toss this: size=big& right after the ? that follows map.adp


Happy Mapping!
