I had done a few projects using Google Physical/Streets as basemaps but now when I re-open those projects all layers appear except for the google basemap (other layers include .kml).
I had previously had this issue when I had a poor internet connection - the basemap would not load - but I now have a good connection so that should not be the problem.
I have also tried starting a new project and adding Google Physical there but likewise nothing appears. In the old projects I have tried removing and re-adding the basemap but no luck.
I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the OpenLayers Plugin (version 1.3.6) but the problem persists. When I use the plugin to add OSM however it does work (but I need Google for these projects).
I have verified the CRS and have it set to WGS 84/Peudo Mercator EPSG:3857
I am using QGIS 2.8.2-Wien on Mac
How do I make Google Physical visible again?
