I want a big image from a selected area at various zoom. Is there an easy way for that? I created an other map (SaveMap) and set the

SaveMap.Position = MainMap.SelectedArea.LocationMiddle;

but i have problems with SaveMap.Size, because of the zoom. How can I count the size of the selected area if i zoom in?

Oh, sorry. I see now, but there is a problem. I want a huge image (or a lots of smaller) from an entire country at big zoom (15+). In this case the program dies (tried for 6 hours, seems it does nothing). Will it start over time, or its totally crashed? (Is it worth to wait for it? The time doesn't matter) Or, is there any way to split it to smaller parts and works with them (make lots of smaller pictures)?

at zoom 15 it would be gigapixel image, i doubt you have so much ram to build it ;} anyway why do you need it?

One of my teacher want a big wallpaper to his classroom. I think this will remain a dream... :D

And what about that splitting idea? I'm trying to do that, but this code is a bit difficult for me.

what size of papers you have to print on?

The print is not my problem, so I don't know. (I think he doesn't know too)
