Cutting Maps of the World with Google MV 2

I recently came across, GoogleMV, a wonderful tool that lets you cut maps of the world based on those available on with automatic calibration for OziExplorer. It's just a matter of selecting the area you're interested in and selecting the zoom level. You'll get a .jpg file and its companion .map file ready to use in OziExplorer or OziCE (you can further process it to ozf2/ozf3 format to gain space). The hardest part is downloading the application as the link on the author's site can be slow resulting in incomplete downloads. In case you can't download it there you can use this backup link with the application pre-configured to English.

UPDATED 20090829 : download the latest version >> HERE << (right-click "save as")

    A few notes :
  1. UPDATED 20090829 - NEW SETTINGS :
    Satellite :
    Hybrid :
    Map :
    Terrain :

  2. UPDATED 20070825 - NEW SETTINGS : image - hybrid - map

  3. Be aware that this application uses multiple download threads so if you abuse it, Google might block your IP, temporarily or for good

  4. There is a premium version that allows for additional map exports (MapInfo and ArcGis) and longer distance measurements (free version limited to 1.5km)

  5. You can cut both aerial, road and hybrid maps, make sure you have these addresses set in the "Source" tab. For image: - For hybrid: - For map: (thanks to cpasoft, see below)

  6. [*]Since GoogleMV produces .map calibration files, they can be used out of the box with Smartcom (Nokia phones) and NoniGPSplot (Windows Mobile devices)
Enjoy !

Is googlemv still working. I have tried all of the tips to get it to work, but still no luck, all I get is a HTTP/1.1 403 forbidden message in the log.

I am using the last links posted on 29/aug/2009

anybody knows some proxy addresses to use in the configuration of google mv to prevent banning?

I want to get large maps,
after GoogleEarth stops the download, I try it again with a new IP,
but GoogleMV starts the download again right from the beginning
and does not use the cached information.
Any idea what I do wrong?

does anybody have GMV ? There is a bug in GMV, it does not read from read-only media. For exits a patch and I hope to solve that problem.

Any sense of what's new ?

Another Google Maps cutter here but probably only for the Gmap application.

Hi, I have found one interesting mistake: GMV downloads portions of map in .png file, with 8 bit colour space. When you order GMV to mape your decided map and compile it into .png, colour space of the final .png file is 32b! After that, there is a very big problem to reduce colour spacel and convert this file. And, img2ozf file doesn't work with this file (now I'm not sure if with common .png can, but common .png is not problem to convert ie. to .gif).

If you make maps into .jpg with 24b colour space (16M colours), the final .ozfx3 is not so clean as if you convert 256 colour .png.

For example try to make some map from ocean area: source .png from google has 2 colours (blue only) and is all blue. Final file has 32b colours and on your monitor you see a grid (try to zoom at least 400%).

The second bad thing is a file size. I have marked whole Europe and downloaded it. Source .png in cache (800k files!!!) has about 2GB. Final .jpg has 30GB!!!
When I convert .jpg into .ozfx3, it is 3 times smaller than .jpg, but the size is still so big to use it on SD card.

Can someone help with this problem?

Have seen decoding of this format somewhere in the past on this Forum.

By the way some new source for the maps :

Is there a way to go from a map with the Google 'qrst' format to get its latitude and longitude?

Is it as simple as assuming the longitude is determined by e.g 'r' is 0 degrees, 'rq' is 90 degrees.

Similarly 'r' is latitude 0 degrees, 'rq' is latitude 45 degrees.

One day after... :-)

There is problem with hybrid map. I tried to download hybrid map of larger area (ie. one county), it creates about 3000 .map files, but when downloading and creating .jpg files GMV hangs. It seems to be working, but when looking to firewall, it pings few data to server, but without answer, it realy doesn't donwload anything. In folder where .map files are stored it creates one .jpg file, this file is okay, the second and maybe the rest are complete grey with announcement: Loading image.

When this happen, I can't look to hybrid and sattelite image in my browser (IE and Opera). I'm trying to erase browser cache, to restart, to turn off firewall, but sometimes it helps, sometimes not. It seems to be Google blocking data mining from my IP for a while. But normal map works.

Has somebody experienced the same problem?
