[MapProxy] Google Static Maps API

I don’t believe Google allows caching of the type that MapProxy does with any of its services. This is really more of a Google question than a MapProxy question. You might be able to negotiate a new contract, but you might have to look at alternative imagery sources.

So please be sure to use only the documented APIs to use imagery, and let's make it clear that "use imagery" does not include (or entitle to) download individual tiles and store them, anywhere. If you need a static image please use the Static Maps API, and if you need an interactive map please use the Maps JavaScript API v3"


I looked in to the best alternative because we really need caching since some users do not have internet access. Would it be possible to use the static map api? And are centerX, centerY and zoom available as parameters in the configuration?


Kind regards,


Milo van der Linden
