[Discourse.ros.org] [General] Easy offline Google Maps layer for MapViz

Maarten de Vries via ros-users



Hi! I've made it easier than ever to integrate Google Maps satellite view with MapViz's tile_map plugin. It has support for caching maps for offline use.

Start proxying Google Maps into a WMTS service (with docker):
```
$ mkdir ~/mapproxy
$ docker run -p 8080:8080 -v ~/mapproxy:/mapproxy -d -t danielsnider/mapproxy
```

Then put this URL into the MapViz map_tile field "Custom WMTS Source...":

```
http://localhost:8080/wmts/gm_layer/gm_grid/{level}/{x}/{y}.png
```

Result:

See my github for more details.

I'm thinking of making a wiki tutorial for MapViz about this too.

I welcome your suggestions!
