I am working on a QGIS project that involves me using the Google Hybrid Map Plug-in. I am due to spend time travelling over the next few days and won't have an internet connection. I was hoping someone could let me know if it's possible to continue using the plug-in without internet? For example by saving the relatively small I need for offline use.

Thanks Sarah


You will need to save the OpenStreetMaps (or whatever images you are able to legally use) for the area that you are interested in onto your machine. Use Project>Save as Image to save what is in your map view as a georeferenced image. You'll probably want to save the maps at different resolutions so that you'll have some zooming in/out ability.
