'Greater Baltimore' map issued by ADC

ADC, "The Map People," has published a "six-in-one" street map book of Greater Baltimore that includes sections on Baltimore and Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Carroll, Harford and Howard counties.

"Real estate agents, home seekers, commuters and others now need only one map book to locate streets and roads throughout metropolitan Baltimore," said Dave Banick, the firm's acting director of publication sales.

Just as in individual map books, each section of the spiral-bound "Greater Baltimore" book shows the location of airports, business parks, colleges and universities, fire companies, lakes and streams, police stations, schools and other points of interest.

While individual map books sell for $10.95, the Greater Baltimore volume cost $39.95.
