Using Google Earth Imagery in QGIS 2.14

Max Karen
Hi,

This is the first time I have used a forum!

I'm a UK Hydrogeologist based in Zambia, I have been using GIS for over a decade and two years ago finally made to leap from ArcGIS to QGIS and have really been impressed.

One of the main things I really liked was the way that you could use Google Earth imagery directly in the desktop then use the save image function and it would save a georeferenced image.

In Zambia we often don't have internet fast enough to use this so having them saved was so useful and saved so much georeferencing time.

Then a few months ago a "developers only" message started appearing on the screens.

So my question is: do we now need a license to access Google Earth imagery, then download a georeferenced image, if so how do we do it?

Thanks in advance,

Max

Hi Max,

Could you attach a screenshot of the warning message? I would be surprised if the functionality was being taken away since QGIS2.14 is no longer supported or being worked on. As a follow on from that I'd recommend upgrading to QGIS 3.4 which is the new LTR.

Finally if it's an issue with the google imagery ( though this is working fine for me) you can use a different satellite provider this post describes how to add more than you could ever need with this script.
