Why the Map does not look the same when I export it (PDF of IMG)?
That’s because the map you see on the map page is sized based on your monitor dimensions.
In order for the exported image to look very close to what you see on screen you need to
change the “Page Dimensions” on the PDF converter window.
Let me give you an example. Say I want to export my map as an image file so I can use
it as a "Wallpaper" for my PC. My computer screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels.
What I need to do in this case is to select “Convert to Image” format JPG, and type in the
dimensions width: 1920px, height 1080px.
The resulting image will look perfect for my screen size and very close to what I see on the
However; remember that the right panel and the header on the map page takes part of the real state.
In that case the map that I see on my computer screen is about 1647 x 791 pixels.
If I export the map with those dimensions the resulting image will be identical to the map on the Web Site.

Map on my screen
Notice how the map itself is identical to the exported image.
Note: the screen-shot of my map is blurry (because of my screen-shot software), but the exported one looks a lot sharper.
Another option is to create map “Snapshots” to export different map views.
