End goal: To put contour lines with lat&long layers from a google earth location (Rock Piles beach, HI) in QGIS. I plan to use CRS: EPSG:3760

Does the Plug in (Openlayers / QuickMapServices) already have the D.E.M (xyz file) or do I need to get it from somewhere else?

I installed both 'openlayers plugin' and 'quickmapservers' plugins in QGIS. Then when I go to the web tab > openlayer plugin > Google Maps > Google physical. This message shows:

The google terrain still downloads, but when I double-click the layer to see the properties, this message pops out:

Is there a way to fix this?

  • Which QGIS are you using? – aldo_tapia Jul 11 '18 at 22:10
  • I think those are just the limitations of the plugin - there are ways to use the Tile XYZ with those same services that overcome these issues – DPSSpatial Jul 11 '18 at 23:58
  • QGIS 2.18 (Las palmas) @aldo_tapia – Uli Diaz Jul 12 '18 at 4:01
  • oh okay I see and how would I be able to do that. You can show me a link or doc to read. @DPSSpatial – Uli Diaz Jul 12 '18 at 4:04
  • Maybe you aren't working with OTF (on the fly projection). You can try with QGIS 3.0 for this purpose, those plugins work really great and you can add custom XYZ tiles very easily – aldo_tapia Jul 12 '18 at 12:12
