This iPod thing ought to be a useful navigation tool.

Is there a good way to carry around maps on an iPod Touch for offline viewing, without jailbreaking the thing? Taking screenshots from Google and transferring them to the iPod is inelegant and unsatisfactory, but I can't find anything in the iTunes store that looks like it will do this. Does anybody know of either an app that I've overlooked or an acceptable hack?

I have a GIS question.

Basically, I want to build mapping system, similar to google maps, using something like Map server & open layers. Take in my own image, such as a building map, define roads or “hallways”, and import points via a XML or RSS feed. I want an interface that I can take the xml feed and run it under the map in a box, displaying it under the map, allowing users to click on the event, and being able to see where they need to go, and using a current fixed position, being able to see how to get there.

How to print high resolution county/street maps

I need to print a huge map, but I need a high resolution source, or vector graphics. I will be printing this on a large 64" color plotter. I found a place that sells pdf/vector files, but they are wanting near $100 dollars, and I don't think they even cover our County. I was hoping there was some software out there that allows this, or better yet, some way to output large images from google maps. Any suggestions? Thanks!
