I got big panel maps and a water resistant cover made for nav charts for boats.

clear packing tape preserves the print where it is folded and refolded repeatedly..

With a compass handy , you flip the map around , so you are looking at the map like you are seeing the place around you.. right to your right, etc.

(unless you exclusively head North).. good maps and all nav charts have a compass rose to orient you to magnetic north,

rather than the physical 90 degree north latitude of the pole, which is not the same..
