Hi! I’ve made it easier than ever to integrate Google Maps satellite view with MapViz’s tile_map plugin. It has support for caching maps for offline use.
Start proxying Google Maps into a WMTS service (with docker):
$ mkdir ~/mapproxy $ docker run -p 8080:8080 -v ~/mapproxy:/mapproxy -d -t danielsnider/mapproxy
Then put this URL into the MapViz map_tile field “Custom WMTS Source…”:
See my github for more details.
I’m thinking of making a wiki tutorial for MapViz about this too.
I welcome your suggestions!
