    We have done similar things using maps from the Dept of Trsnaportation
    (they had aerial shots of the whole state) and the soil and water
    conservation dept. Once I made sure the maps were the same scale, we
    pinned them to boards and laid plastic over them and then could mark the
    plastic sheets with washable markers. I have marked one sheet of plastic
    with indeible ink gridlines to better calculate areas.
