Google maps - would it be legal to create a map mod ?

  • I am wondering, would it be legal to create and share a map mod based on google maps 3d photogrammetry data ?

  • @_supermaster Google's motto is "Do as much evil as possible". They suck.

    (c) No Creating Content From Google Maps Content. Customer will not create content based on Google Maps Content. For example, Customer will not: (i) trace or digitize roadways, building outlines, utility posts, or electrical lines from the Maps JavaScript API Satellite base map type; (ii) create 3D building models from 45° Imagery from Maps JavaScript API; (iii) build terrain models based on elevation values from the Elevation API; (iv) use latitude/longitude values from the Places API as an input for point-in-polygon analysis; (v) construct an index of tree locations within a city from Street View imagery; or (vi) convert text-based driving times into synthesized speech results.

    Oh well, i wasted some time researching the convertion process, was fun.

    Saw someone made Zagreb city just for experiment.
    Also there are some works in MFS2020 community based on G.M.

    Thanks for the quick answer ! 😄👍

  • @_supermaster I doubt they would come after you, you can imagine the bad publicity and they are already under scrutiny as a monopoly, especially in Europe.
