Save Google Maps for Offline Use
Google Maps is no doubt one of the most used tool to find almost just any location or place on planet Earth. There is one problem though. You can only enjoy such convenience if you are connected to the internet. There is an option to print on Google Maps, but the limited map size and zoom level doesn’t make it any helpful.
Here’s a simple tool that can partly solve the problem, Google Map Saver. With it, you can save any part of Google Maps as an image to your local disk, at a zoom level and resolution of your choice. Being able to select the zoom level lets you dictate how detailed you want your map to be.
If you are wondering how big the map can be — it can go, this big.
Usage idea – print a large map pointing to your house, frame it and hang it in your room. Geekiness +10 overnight.
No installation required. Just download and start the app. After starting it, click on the “About” on the right top corner and click “Agree”. Otherwise there would be an ugly watermark on your saved maps.
