If you’ve ever wanted to be able to download Google Maps data for offline use, you should check out gmapcatcher, a cross-platform application that caches map segments locally.
There’s both a GUI version and a command-line version that you can use to pull down the maps data. The whole thing is written in Python, but the installer should handle everything for Windows users. If not, install Python and try again.
