Using GoogleMap in crag topos 27-Jul-2010 At 2:49:06 PM Philtown
TLDR: Yeah just do it.

We came across this at my work* with using their maps in the bells & whistles version that google earth is based on - GIS. Google buy the imagery from multiple 3rd parties. They then don't care where you use it as long as you're not profiting and you credit them, hence the copyright watermark they include in google earth. If you're using it for a commercial purpose they generally don't mind as long as you credit them, but there is a lot of ambiguity in their T&C which many people are rightly wary of. So compnies will often buy the imagery from the original owners themselves.

Anyway, better to embed an image so it gets updated when they update their imagery - roughly every year or so.

Also their stuff can be out of date in less populated areas. Check out for comparisons of recent mapping. It's a good tool for verifying currency.

Cheers, Phil
