Map of Souther Africa wanted in JPEG format
« on: April 17, 2019, 05:07:41 pm »
Good day

Me and some friends are doing the Put Foot rally this year....whoooop whoop :)
We are looking for a detailed road map of Southern Africa from Cape town to Malawi to put on a 800x800 sticker.
I have trouble searching for a large enough map to blow up to this size without distorting.

Does anyone know if there is some road map of this quality available in JPEG format ??

Your help will be highly appreciated,

Thank you

How far up Malawi must it go?

I can probably find something in my stash or make it.

All the way from Cape Town to the middle of Lake Malawi

Do you have a map like this ?

By pure chance I saw a map book the other day at the local 4x4 outfitting/kitting place here in Somerset West. I believe it was made by Tracks4Africa. They used to be right behind our offices and I know they always made digital maps that you could upload to your Garmin GPS. But I do like the feel of a real map and this book does just that. It is in A4 form, but each country's map folds out to about 4 times. Then neatly back into the book once you are done. Believe it went for 700 Ront or there-ish

In addition, I have been to the Directorate Mapping and Surveying in Mowbray, Cape Town a few times and they also have the most interesting of maps available in digital format for free. But don't ever try to phone or email them. Walk in to your nearest branch. Very helpful in person, very rubbish otherwise.
