I want to mass download georectified sat image tiles (XYZ tiles) and save them locally.

I could setup QGIS so I can see google sat images. So for example, I want all tiles of Los Angeles in a geo resolution of 50x50 m (and let the pixel resolution be whatever it will be then) and 200 x 200 tiles of that.

How I am going to approach this problem?

  • XYZ Tiles, google sat server: mt1.google.com/vt/lyrs=s&x={x}&y={y}&z={z} – rickogobo Apr 22 at 17:05
  • I dont intent to use it for any commercial apps – rickogobo Apr 22 at 17:07
  • If you dont find any other way you can use print composer and atlas – BERA Apr 22 at 17:20
  • Ok thanks, I take a look into it – rickogobo Apr 22 at 17:23
  • Might be easier to write a script in python or some other language. If you know the zoom level and the range of x and y it would be a series of http requests in a nested loop. – Spacedman Apr 22 at 18:01
