    How funny; I did the same project about a month ago. I downloaded scores of tiles and stitched them together in Photoshop. My finished image is 72 x 94 inches! After I was finished I cropped and resized several different versions and images, the largest being the one I mentioned above, and the smallest being 10-inch wide images of each park. My largest park images are 36 inches wide. My images are jpegs and tiffs (you'll need the files in tiff format to have them printed at Kinkos), and the files are so large (and resolution so high) that it takes several CD ROMs to hold them all (two disks to hold the original, full-sized image).

    Believe me, this was a LOT of work!

    I also have an older black and white of the same area taken before they broke ground for DCA, showing the old parking lot and the RV park. This image is 14.5 x18.5 inches, and also jpeg and tiff formats, but not nearly as high resolution.

    I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but the site www.terraserver-usa.com provides the satellite view of the entire country with some areas "urban areas" being in color and in good quality.

    It's where Disney management is. They take care of biznaz in that building; Ouimet's offices are there.
    Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

    Not just urban areas. My boyfriend is a hick from Georgia, and their farmhouse out in the middle of nowhere was on the Terra Server in FULL COLOR. Pretty close up too. Lots of forests and grass and not much else.

    But my little OC suburb is still all in fuzzy black and white!

    Re: Disneyland from Above

    Here's a program that will blow your mind away if you havn't seen it. It is where that exact pic of DLR came from, and it is way better than the normal google maps http://earth.google.com/

    I don't think that original url from the first post came from google earth, or even from the same time period. Google earth is 3d (kinda') and the satellite view from the original post is quite a bit older than Google's images (space mountain is all white in google earth, and Autopia is walled off).

    I think someone was selling printouts of the larger satellite image on ebay for a while. I don't know if why they stopped but we could conjecture.
