I need a areal image or satellite Image as a basemap for some maps. Since I have read that the OpenLayers plugin is no longer supported here, here and here (just to name a few), I changed to the QuickMapServices plugin.
However, now I'm trying to get a high-resolution areal / satellite image as a base map and therefore I chose the MapQuest Aerial layer. Yet, this plugin does not work. I am getting the error message
QuickMapServices: Failed to download all xx files. - MapQuest Aerial
I checked the CRS. It is set to EPSG:3857 (WGS 84 / Pseudo Mercator) and I also tried others.
Do you know how to solve this error? Or is there another plug-in that provides high-res basemap imagery?
