Google Maps allows you to search for businesses in a certain area, find driving directions and more. The map application also has a vast collection of satellite imagery. Unfortunately, Google doesn't make its satellite maps easy to print. By following a certain procedure, however, you'll be able to print out large satellite images of almost any area you want.
