I've downloaded this Google Maps XML:
I can load it in QGIS, for example, and view it as a raster.
I want to save an small area (a town) in an ecw or a tiff in order to create an WMS later, and be able to add the layer in another (not so modern) GIS than can't load xml.
I've followed the steps posted here:
It seems that it can be done in QGIS but the ECW SDK version 3.3 is needed, which i can't find it anywhere. So, my QGIS won't save ECWs and if i try to save it as TIFF i can only save it with a 20% of output size wich is shit if i try to make zoom on an area later on. If a try it with more than 20% i get the following error:
ERROR 2: C:\Users\agmartin\Desktop\google_maps_20.xml, band 1: Out of memory in InitBlockInfo(). ERROR 2: C:\Users\agmartin\Desktop\google_maps_20.xml, band 1: Out of memory in InitBlockInfo().
I am using a new computer so i guess its not a hardware problem. SO: Windows 7 64bits. Processor: Intel Xeon E3-1240 V2 RAM: 20GB
Is there any other software or procedure to save a google maps area on ecw or tiff with good quality (zoom levels)?
