Despite the popularity of portable GPS devices, state officials say the demand for printed maps of Georgia remains strong.

Cissy McNure, spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Transportation, says the state is expected to release about 1.3 million copies of the 2009 map to rest stops and welcome centers across the state starting next month. She says that number is down slightly from the 1.7 million maps the state printed five years ago.

She says the state is spending about $300,000 on printing this year's maps, most of which is covered by federal funding.
