It’s been available online at awsofa.info for a while, which is a nice, browsable Google Maps powered way to see the intricacies of the diagram.
However, if you’ve tried to print it, it’s next to impossible. Using the browser File->Print just captures what is onscreen, so you’re forced to choose between viewing a tiny portion of the diagram in high resolution or the entire diagram in a low, unusable resolution.
I really wanted to print the whole diagram on a plotter, and after playing with the HTML for an hour, I got a good 24″x200″ print hanging on the wall at my office.

I’m sharing the high-resolution PDF that was an intermediate step in my workflow. It’s 27″x240″, but if you select scale to paper size on a plotter, this should print well on any large size. Note that it’s considerably wider than it is tall, so it’s helpful to set a custom size.
I hope this helps anyone trying to print it.
