My organization is broken into territories and I'm looking to divide our territory into smaller maps to print out on 3"x5" card stock. What is the best way to do this? New to map making so your thoughts and suggestions are appreciated.

A search of this site for "paper" produces a few hits - are they any use?

You can download some data for an area and render your own maps. This gives you much more control over the size and scale of the resulting maps and exactly what gets rendered too. Two popular ways to render a map are Tilemill and Maperitive.

On the map page there is an export tab this will export a square of map. by experimenting with modified latitudes and longitudes you should get the next and the next,you may even be able to get jpegs or pngs in 3 by 5 ratio. The two screens should make this clearer. Geeks will have more automated solutions maybe.alt text
