Download Google Maps on PC and View Offline

Maps are important things that guides us when we visit places unknown to us. With launch of Google maps services it became easier for people with internet access to view these maps on their mobile phones and pc’s. But there are times when you cannot depend on internet availability. Due to internet failure you may end up landing on a place totally unknown without any help. To solve this weird situation GMapCatcher will be of great help.  
GMapCatcher is a free multi platform application what can connect to google maps and give you maps of the place typed in. You can zoom in/zoom out to get clear view of roads and locations of important avenues.
In this application also you will get options to view maps, satellite or terrain view of the given location. Few operations that can be done with the maps are zoom in/ zoom out, add marker, reset map, batch download, center map and export map
Once you get the map on this application you can press download button to download the maps. Before downloading the map you will get option to specify latitude, longitude, height and width of the area in Km to be downloaded.
My Verdict: This application is helpful for all purpose of work involving maps, specially in situations where internet availability will not be possible during your travel as you can always take a print of these maps consisting of details of the place as specified by you before downloading it.
