Is it possible to get a hybrid (map and satellite) high-resolution map similar to what we get from Google Earth Maps?

GeoGraphics[
 GeoMarker[
  Entity["City", {"London", "GreaterLondon", "UnitedKingdom"}]], 
 GeoRange -> Quantity[1, "Miles"], GeoZoomLevel -> Automatic, 
 GeoBackground -> "Satellite"]

Mathematica graphics

  • $\begingroup$ @SjoerdC.deVries, I tried this (wolfram.com/mathematica/new-in-10/geographic-visualization/…) but not success. The Satellite map is too bad. $\endgroup$ – Algohi Sep 26 '16 at 21:11

    $\begingroup$ So your question is not about combining graphics, but about obtaining better satellite images? If so, you probably should state that more clearly in your question. $\endgroup$ – Sjoerd C. de Vries Sep 26 '16 at 21:14
  • $\begingroup$ @SjoerdC.deVries it is actually both combining graphics and better satellite images. I did not say I succeeded in any of them. $\endgroup$ – Algohi Sep 26 '16 at 21:20
  • $\begingroup$ Would using GeoServer help? $\endgroup$ – chuy Sep 26 '16 at 21:21

Using GeoServer in Mathematica 11 you can download a hybrid map from Google:

GeoGraphics[
 GeoMarker[
  Entity["City", {"London", "GreaterLondon", "UnitedKingdom"}]], 
 GeoRange -> Quantity[1, "Miles"], 
 GeoBackground -> GeoStyling["StreetMap"], 
 GeoServer -> "http://mt0.google.com/vt/lyrs=s,h&x=`2`&y=`3`&z=`1`"]

Mathematica graphics

  • $\begingroup$ That is great. Thanks $\endgroup$ – Algohi Sep 26 '16 at 21:54
  • $\begingroup$ Would the downvoter care to explain what's wrong with this post? $\endgroup$ – Sjoerd C. de Vries Sep 27 '16 at 17:40
  • $\begingroup$ DynamicGeoGraphics[...] works too (Simply replace GeoGraphics[...] by DynamicGeoGraphics[...]) $\endgroup$ – andre314 Sep 27 '16 at 18:32
