Google Maps

Is it possible to programatically, on a web server, generate a Google Map of a specific address, scale it to the scale desired (about 2 mi square), & save it to an image file so it can be downloaded & viewed with no internet connection?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

@rkorts: the answer is yes, it's doable... the question is do you violate the terms of the license agreement for the Google Maps API to do that...

I understand, I looked at the terms, of course it's a huge morass of legalese, but I gather I can't do that.
