QGIS allows me to connect to free map services like ESRI's 'world imagery'.
I would like to save a certain part of it (decided by map extent) in the highest zoom level available in the service for later offline use.
this is for a purely non-commercial personal project. I intend to create a raster service for a few friends and myself in a connected environment. on this we want to overlay data related to some public service related work we are doing.
could someone tell me a) if I can save the relevant raster images using QGIS b) if yes, how to do it and in what format should I save those so that I can create a raster service from it
