TL;DR Version - Want to overlay my very high-res shot over google maps and have both in a high res image.
I have what I think is a fairly basic question but I’ve searched a lot here and on google and haven’t found it asked.
I’m really impressed by DD and have made a few sample terrain maps. I’m trying to get a very high quality map so I’ve taken a lot of pictures. The result turned out great and is a 2.2 gigapixel image.
The issue is that I want the non-photographed google map portions that surround my area included in my final image file, rather than a white background, so I can have a complete rectangular map with my own images overlaid over a google map. I can open the tiff file in google earth and save an image that includes the dimensions I want, but it saves it at google earth resolution not gigapixel resolution.
I used a website (google maps customizer) to auto-stitch together the best google map version of the entire area I want to cover, but don’t know any way to get my photographed portion to overlay on top of it since it’s just a jpeg without location data.
This seems like somebody else would have wanted to do this so maybe I’m just using the wrong search terms. Thanks in advance!
