  • 1.  google api

    Posted 11 days ago
    Hi, there used to be a thread about getting google api to work as a WMTS but I cant find it.

    I have a google  API key from a client but cant figure out the structure of the URL - the google api page is remarkably unhelpful.

    Anyone know the URL string structure I should be using.

    Thanks

    Nick

    Hi Nick,

     

    There are ways to hack this but I think they all breach Google's Terms & Conditions and they're not the sort of dragon you want to poke with a stick! The US-based partner Mapping Solutions has an add-on for Pro called MapperG which has licensed use, and there's a free trial available. There was also a time where Google would provide a WMTS-based service of their imagery for a fee, but I believed they phased it out a couple of years ago.
