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 maps.google.com 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 : http://khm.google.com/kh/v=44&hl=en&x=
    Hybrid : http://mt.google.com/vt/v=w2t.106&hl=en&x=
    Map : http://mt.google.com/vt/v=w2.106&hl=en&x=
    Terrain : http://mt.google.com/vt/v=w2p.106&hl=en&x=

  2. UPDATED 20070825 - NEW SETTINGS : image
    http://kh.google.com/kh?v=99&n=404&t=t - hybrid
    http://mt.google.com/mt?n=404&v=w2t.70&x= - map
    http://mt.google.com/mt?n=404&v=w2.70&x=

  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: http://kh.google.com/kh?v=99&n=404&t=t - For hybrid: http://mt.google.com/mt?n=404&v=w2t.40&x= - For map: http://mt.google.com/mt?n=404&v=w2.39&x= (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 !

  • You must change sources on the app. For this, go to setting panel, sources tab and set:
    For image:
    http://kh.google.com/kh?v=99&n=404&t=t
    For hybrid:
    http://mt.google.com/mt?n=404&v=w2t.40&x=
    For map:
    http://mt.google.com/mt?n=404&v=w2.39&x=

  • [/list=1]Enjoy !


    You can also use it with Compe or GlobalMapper, and you could save it into ECW format and use with a lot of GIS programs, like ArcGis, ArcMap, AutocadMap...

    It's very easy...
    * Open the URL maps.google.com with firefox
    * Choose the imagen you want (satellite, hybrid, map)
    * Go to tools->page information
    * Check the URL for one of the images on the "media" tab

    If you can understand spanish, go to this topic:

    What a great forum is this. I am brand new here. I am in US and only can read English. I got the software installed OK. I followed the above brief instruction to find my city in Google. When I click "Media" tab, too many address there, and none contain the whole map. Even I can find the right address, I do not how to download the map in GoogleMV. Any tricks? Thanks a lot.

    Hum...right, this is the English section of the forums, not sure what you're driving at, anyway I was just asking where you were at in using the program.

    What do you mean by "download" ? With an active internet connection the maps will appear automatically on the screen, then select the area you're interested with the "dashed rectangle" icon, click start, leave the defaults settings, click ok and you're done.

    This program isn't working for me. I changed the sources to the ones cpasoft listed, but the program just sits there with a big grey square that says "Loading q Loading r Loading t Loading s". What am I doing wrong?

    Check your firewall or your virus scanner. Maybe the aplication cannot access to inet...

    Same here, doesn't work. I can type in the image/map tile download url to my browser manually, and I get a valid image/map tile from Google, so I know the url is correct. But the same url appearing in the download log window of GoogleMV produces nothing except "Download error".

    Ok, now I'm having more success after persistent diagnostic work. I downloaded the original Russian version and made sure I had all the components (some basic world image tiles and subdirectories are missing from the English version). For some reason the program is not creating the cache directories it requires. It needs a temp folder c:\temp, which did not exist on my system. And under the cache subdirectory it needs numbered sub-sub-directories for the image tiles which it seems to be unable to create. If I create these directories for the program, then I can start to successfully download some image and map tiles.

    I have a made a simple tool that converts from ozi exported from googleMV format to gmi (Gpstuner format) It is available here:

    http://rapidshare.com/files/21931856/mapToGmi.rar.html

    It's very simple! Took me half an hour to do it... and it works for me! It's not tested! Use at your own risk!
