i need to print a detailed map, on a street level zoom of Metro Manila. i figured to do this i need to download map tiles, but that will be a breach on map usage in OSM. then i found this website, http://metro.teczno.com/#manila, they provide pre-downloaded map extracts of certain areas, with Metro Manila being one, just what i need.
Now what i have to do is get a hold of some GIS application, and that will be QGIS, i've done some research and it turns out QGIS offers a plugin that prints maps, print composer to be exact, but as i continue reading, though i haven't really tried it, print composer only prints in a certain zoom level? or paper/print size?
I need a map that is on a street level, so if im gonna use one paper, it has to be hude to accomodate the street zoom level, so im thinking if print composer provides or has a feature to cut a map on a street level zoom to multiple A4 size papers or any smaller size papers, so that i can just later on fit them all together?.
