Note: The ability to print a map from a mobile device is dependent on several factors which include: access to the network the printer is on, access to applications specific to the brand of printer, and access to applications specific to the mobile device.
For this reason, it may be considered preferable to save the image as a .pdf or .jpeg for later printing via a computer connected to a printer.
The PDF image can be viewed with a PDF viewer which can be found in the app store specific to the device being used.
The JPG image will open in a new browser tab.
