Map for Presentation - How to?

I'm looking at incorporating a map for a presentation. To be more specific. If you google "Schaumburg Insurance Agents", you get a mapquest map, with dots showing the location of each of these places (if you click on it, it expands to the whole screen as a map and you can click on all the dots). How do I get a copy of that map so that I can select only the map, and list it in a powerpoint? I don't need the links to be working (click on the dots) but just a good reference to the location of the insurance agents in that area.

Second option is to get a empty map, and populate the locations (dots) myself. I'm assuming photoshop for this, but again, where would I get a blank map of the suburb to work off of (something like mapquest where the roads are clear/legible).

Any help is much appreciated.

Cliffs - How do I get a mapquest map to save so I can use it in a presentation. Right click function does not work to "save as".


THANKS!

old school: screen cap the map and put it in as a picture... so even without connectivity you have the map.

Ah thanks. Yeah for the mean time I "print screened" it to copy it, pasted into word. Looks like I need to use that snip tool for the link you posted to cut out that portion. Shoot, I can probably select and cut out the portion of the map from the screen print in photoshop too.

Thanks.

Yes, an imaging program to clean it up is best...

While 'live links' are 'neat' and all, when it comes to a presentation it's always best to have everything IN the presentation (if possible) so it's entirely self-sustaining and will run on any machine with or without networking...

That way you don't look like a dork if something goes wrong

Agreed. Thanks.

Witnessed plenty of videos in college of folks having an external link to a video, click on the link, and the video sits there loading, and doesn't play.
