Offline Maps Viewer – Download GMapCatcher
GMapCatcher is an offline maps viewer. It downloads CloudMade, OpenStreetMap or Google Map tiles automatically, display them using a specific GUI. You can download your maps and save them to your local hard drive, which allows you to browse your saved locations even while you are offline. Other features include support for zooming, custom markers, adjustable map sizes and export of map tiles to PNG image.
The tool is great for times when you are travelling or on holiday and you do not know if you are going to be able to get online. All you need to do is to connect to the internet at home and download the area of the map that you are interested in and you will then be able to use them regardless of whether you are able to get online or not. This is handy in many respects, but you will obviously not be able to access sections of the map that you have not downloaded in advance.
Despite the name and the fact that the project is hosted as Google Project, it is sad to see that Google Maps is not supported. On top of this, the interface is a little confusing to use, but if you have the perseverance to stick with it, and don’t mind using an app that is somewhat differently laid out to other programs – this is especially true for Windows users – this is an extremely useful piece of software.
