I am using Qgis 2.18.9 and I have a very simple request from a client. They have provided me with shapefiles of their mining sites and they want me to produce for them a PDF they can print at a really large scale, about 1 inch equals 2000 feet on a sheet of paper at a size 42 inches x 60 inches with the background looking very close to that of google maps.
I can add a google maps basemap to my drawing but the issue is when I make the PDF all of the labels are so small they are unusable. I am adding the google maps basemap through the use of the openlayers plugin.
Can somebody please guide me in this?
One final note, the final product does not have have the gray color that is seen on google maps used as a background, if it does it does if it doesn't it doesn't.
