Don't you love the quality of Google Maps? Ever wish you could create a giant one (2048x1792), bigger than your screen? They're great for making posters, or art. You could do it the hard way, by pasting together screen grabs, or you can use this free software...

I predict...
darkstar: ...they will soon receive a message from Google Maps, similar to this one received recently by the developers of gMerge:

The Google Maps team recently noticed your Google Maps tile "stitcher"  
wallpaper maker at http://gmerge.2ni.net/. Google is always happy  
to see developers interested in our products and we commend you on the  
service. That said, we would appreciate it if you voluntarily remove  
your service and stop using Google Maps on your web site. The service  
violates the Maps Terms of Service available at  
http://www.google.com/help/terms_local.html, and jeopardizes our  
 
ability to make Google Maps available to the public because it  
encourages non-personal use of Google Maps.  
 
If you have any questions or concerns, or if we have contacted the  
wrong people, please feel free to contact me directly. Otherwise,  
please let us know as soon as possible when the service has been  
removed.  
 
Thanks,

Product Manager, Google Maps
