Can Anyone Please Help Me Out With Some Route Maps

Mon Mar 11, 2002 12:37 am

Hi,

I have searched all over the web and looked in books but I can't find what I am looking for.

What I need is a route map for Las Vegas. What would be excellent is if I can have a map of America and lots of lines on it coming from Las Vegas Mc Carren Airport showing all the destinations served by the airport. If I can have a map of the world it would be even better.

What ealse would be good is a map showing roads and/or railways into the city and where they go in America.

The maps need to be small - a max of A4 size.

For your information I need them for my Worldwide Destinations Assignement for my travel and tourism course at college.

Many thanks,

Airliners

How about this, from the Great Circle Mapping site: (http://gc.kls2.com)



I've also heard that this setup works well too:

Of course, the Web graphics are pretty bad looking...

Airliners....

Excellent suggestion from FlyBoeing ... that's what I would do. Of course, you have to enter all the data into the mapping website, so you have to do some research. If your destinations are within the USA, the website will produce a map of the US, not the world.

If you're using IE on a Windows computer, can copy the image by pressing the right mouse button with the curser over the map, selecting "copy", then pasting it into a Word or PowerPoint (or whatever) document.

Here are some pretty maps I whipped up....just click the link, when the web page opens you can edit the destinations and re-display the map. (Note that my destination choices are fictitious.)

Cheers,
Pete
