Google Maps Downloader


Google Maps Downloader is a tool that can automatically download the Google Maps, satellite or terrain images from Google Maps for offline viewing on your PC, you can also combine multiple maps into one file.


Overview

Google Maps Downloader can download the small tiles and save them to your hard disk, including the normal maps, satellite maps, hybrid maps and terrain maps. The situations where a map is necessary can vary from going on a trip to educational purpose. After all, the method is more important than the reason and as far as map software is concerned, options are very rich. Google Satellite Maps Downloader allows you to download images and photos from all over the world directly to your PC using Google Maps.

In Google Maps and Google Earth you can find photos from almost all over the world, from remote places in the wilderness with incredible beauty to the village that we want to visit during our holidays. And on many occasions we want to download these images and store them on our hard drive so that we can check them later for something, or simply because they are nice.

Once we have the photos on our computer, Google Satellite Maps Downloader also offers us the possibility to combine them to create a larger image, because it downloads them in small portions. Thus, we can obtain a more detailed map of the location that we want.

What differentiates the software belonging to this category is the quality of the images and the download speed. Google Maps Downloader successfully fulfills both of those conditions, providing simple means to quickly grab maps at satisfactory resolution. In addition, it’s extremely easy to use and integrates an extensive help file for first time users.

Google Satellite Maps Downloader is an application that will help us to download all the images that we want, by simple inputting the exact coordinates of the location. Once we have indicated the North, South, East and West limitations, and the zoom that we want to apply to the images of the "photo" that we want to take, the software will download the photos straight from Google Maps.

After downloading, you can view the maps offline by its tool Maps Viewer, or you can combine the small images into one big map image. You even can export all tiles to a mbtiles format database. If you want to make a map of your city by yourself, it is very useful for you. The maximum zoom level is 13, so the downloaded tiles are high precision images.

Google Maps Downloader - Download areas

Map Puzzle
If you want to download some map location from Google Maps, Bing Maps or any other map service, Map Puzzle is just what you need! It will allow you to save your map locations into high resolution images (jpg, gif, png, bmp, tiff) The only thing you need to do is to enter GPS coordinates or address by GeoCoding, hit "Download" and you are done! The map has been saved into to your computer.

It works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Requires no installation and its FREE. The name Map Puzzle is probably a bit misleading, it can make you believe that this is some kind of game. It came from the idea of putting together all those small map tiles into one large Map, a little bit like putting a puzzle.

Addons:
Add Scale Lines - This setting adds lines both horizontal and vertical, which shows the distance on the map to give you something to refer to. Add X To Mark Coordinates will add a red X mark on the exactly given GPS coordinates. The mark will NOT always be in the exact center of map since Map Puzzle is working with tiles. Each tile is 256x256px, so the mark will be somewhere within 256 pixels from the center. Generate World File is used by Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to georeference raster map image.
