Service

Large Format Printing:


Introduction:

 

The Map Collection GIS Service provides a large format printing service for patrons. This service is limited to GIS and cartography products. The GIS Service will not print general posters for patrons.

Common products that are printed out on the large format printer include ArcView or ArcGIS Layouts via ArcPress, historic map reproductions (Map Collection also has scanner), and cartographic products created in various GIS-related software.

Printing is by appointment only. The GIS Specialsit at the Map Collection will assist the patron with preparing their layout and will handle the actual print job. Since the printer is networked, in some cases it may be posible to obtain one of the drivers to print from another Yale campus computer if the patron will be printing frequently or is printing a product that is difficult to port. See the GIS Specialist at the Map Collection for more details.
