What is a good source for high quality maps for PowerPoint? The ones I have in logos are poor quality that if you try to enlarge to show details in powerpoint, they get really fuzzy and are an extremely poor quality.'

Thanks.

generally if you use Logos' Print/Export feature and then copy the image from Word to the clipboard, you will get a higher resolution for your maps.

See my directions in this CIV webpage and look in the 2nd Tab (Adding to Clipboard) and scroll down to Method 2.

Edit:

Below are the same map from Logos. The first image of the map is 1000 x 609, while the second image of the map after copying from Word is 1800 x 1096.

Thanks Steve, Logos really shouldn't make it that difficult to get a simple map

Is the resolution that way different than if you right click and "Send to Powerpoint"?

You are right. It would be nice to always get the full resolution map when copying to the clipboard.

For images that i want to copy/paste into a document, i generally use my CIV tool to zoom and crop the area that i need. Then do a screen capture and paste that into my document.
