Printable Maps

maps iconThese maps are printable versions of the most current CPT assessments.

Adobe Acrobat software is needed to open each PDF. Using Acrobat do one of the following:

  • Print the map on standard 8.5"x11" paper. Under "Page Scaling," select "Fit to printable area." Details are more difficult to see at this scale.
  • Print the map on a professional plotter on size D 22"x34" paper. Details are easier to see at this scale.
  • View it on your computer screen. You can zoom in to easily see details.
