All our design exercises start with the site selection & study and this is the time when we require such high resolution Google Maps imagery for study. But the problem that comes is the output which we can generate from Google Earth and Google Map standard editions is of low resolution, generally limited by the screen resolution of the monitor itself. And as we require these images to create large underlay plans for studying, printing and related aspects generally we end up manually stitching individual low resolution images to create base maps. This is not only a time consuming process, but also can lead to errors and requires use of high end photo editing tools like Photoshop and gimp.
So in this tutorial I will cover how we can generate high resolution Google Maps imagery using Google Maps and a simple tool to download and combine the images. Download the tools used in the tutorial video from links below and follows the steps shown in the video.
