Hi all

I'm trying to use mapproxy and google static maps api
<https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/staticmaps/> with this
config <http://hastebin.com/inuwuciwic.rb>.

I hoped this could be an alternative to means of getting basemap imagery
into qgis, as the qgis openlayers plugin + map composer is a bit buggy at

When I run *mapproxy-util serve-develop mapproxy.yaml* I can see the
requests going as
understandably when I view the web map at I get the
error "could not get any sources" http 400.

The api wants to receive xy requests as lat,long - is there a way to get
mapproxy to send requests using this format?

I'm new to web mapping in general so there are probably mistakes in my
config and, fundamentally, I'm not sure if what I'm trying to do is
faesible. I wanted to avoid directly accessing google's images as this is
not allowed.

mapproxy 1.7.1
ubuntu 14.0.1 64-bit

Many thanks =]
