Universal Maps Downloader – is an application that you can use to download maps from Google, Yahoo and Microsoft.
The interface of the tool consists of a standard window which is easy to navigate through, so you shouldn’t have a problem getting around UMD.
You can get started by setting the task name (in the UMD project format).
Furthermore, you can select the map type you are attempting to download (e.g. Google Street, Satellite or Terrain maps, Yahoo Street or Satellite maps, Microsoft VirtualEarth Street, Satellite or Hybrid maps).
But you can also adjust the zoom level, input the left, right, top and bottom latitude, as well as the output destination of the maps.
Once you have initiated the downloading process, you can view data about the total number of downloaded images, log file, and more.
In addition, you can convert degrees, minutes and seconds to degrees, combine maps, re-download failed images, set the default path and configure proxy settings.
The program uses a very low amount of system resources and includes a comprehensive help file with snapshots. Also, UMD completes a task in a short amount of time without popping up any errors.
However, the demo version doesn’t allow you to download high-quality images and you should be careful when naming tasks, because the tool automatically overwrites files with the same name (and you cannot disable this option).
All in all, Universal Maps Downloader is a very good tool for downloading maps from the Internet and we strongly recommend it to all users.
