Google Maps in Feature Analyzer

Can we add Google Maps (with an API key) into Feature Analyzer as a backdrop layer? If so, how? Thanks

Re: Google Maps in Feature Analyzer

An API key isn't required to use the Google Maps Tile Server and the URL is publicly known eg. http://mt.google.com/vt/lyrs=m&x={x}&y={y}&z={z}


Where 'lyrs = '


  • h = roads only
  • m = standard roadmap
  • p = terrain
  • r = somehow altered roadmap
  • s = satellite only
  • t = terrain only
  • y = hybrid

It can be added via Custom Tile service.

Re: Google Maps in Feature Analyzer

Important thing to notice that direct access to google maps tile servers is forbidden by the Terms Of Service, so, while it may be possible ( the acces to the tiles server should be closed or restricted by now) it is no legal to do it. At the same time, consider that due to recent changes in Google Maps TOS, all request should have a valid Api Key, otherwise the map will show a watermark announcing that such implementation is for development purposes only.
