What Territory Maps does your congregation use?

For many years maps were cut and then pasted onto the society sup pied map cards.

Modern mapping facilities now offer more alternatives, hence the question.

Are you still using the old postcard size format or something different?

Due to the size of our territory and the "poor eye-sight" of many of us, we have our maps printed on 8 X 10 cards and laminated. They still fit in most of the bookbags or can stay in the vehicle, but the friends like our maps since they can see them, read them and not lose them.

I assist in territories. For the most part we are still using the old cards. I have made some new cards to fit in the old plastic holders when we have split territories or otherwise adjusted them. I have used digital images and then printed them and they seem to work well. It is a big job to update all the cards. Another issue is keeping track of do not calls. I'm looking into the territory software that is mentioned here in a different thread.

We have one of the biggest areas in England to cover in our Western Lake District congregation - 5 lakes, 19 villages and 3 towns.

We have 95 maps - some are just humungous rural area maps (ordinance survey maps that show scattered farms/cottages/hamlets in lake valleys, etc). Urban maps are postcard size, but the 'map brother' sends them to each Group Overseer via Email and it can be printed out any size you like. The map brother keeps all the 'master copies' and records of maps in and out, so he knows who works what at any given time and doesn't give out more than 2 at any time.

I once heard a visiting brother say that maps should only have up to 150 houses on! Not here or we would have hundreds of maps - some single streets have 150 houses on! The visitor must have been from a well-worked, well-supported city area.

I'm almost finished with the Do Not Call tracking for Territory Assistant. It will allow you to enter each DNC at the territory level. You can plot its location on the map using the address entered and move the marker around to fine tune it's actual location. The DNC will show up on the printed map card as a house symbol with a "No" Symbol over top. Imagine the Ghost busters symbol with a house instead of a ghost. The details will also show on the Map Card. There is a date field so you can track when it was last updated. There is also a Congregation level roll up report designed to make it easy to see all the DNCs at once.
