When I use global imagery to make a pdf it comes out all pixelated at any zoom level. Can I not use global imagery to make pdf''s for offline use?
attached is a pdf that I made with global imagery.

    Hi Wayne,

    Thanks for attaching the PDF- that is really helpful. The higher zoom levels for Global Imagery incorporate MapBox layers, which can't be printed due to licensing restrictions. When you try to print print global imagery at these higher zoom levels, it will only print the Sentinel imagery, which is much lower resolution.

    We are working on a solution for this but in the meantime, NAIP is your best bet for aerial imagery in generated PDFs. Keep in mind though that NAIP only covers the continental US.

    Hope that helps,
