Josef Kle­ber sub­mit­ted an up­date to the getmap pack­age. Ver­sion: 1.9 2016-06-18 Li­cense: lppl Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Down­load OpenStreetMap maps for use in doc­u­ments An­nounce­ment text:
The goal of this pack­age is the sim­plest pos­si­ble pro­vi­sion of map im­ages (OpenStreetMap, Google Maps and Google Street View are sup­ported). In the sim­plest case, it is is suf­fi­cient to spec­ify an ad­dress.. The pack­age loads the map us­ing the \write18 fea­ture, which you must ac­ti­vate to use this pack­age. The im­age will be down­loaded by an ex­ter­nal Lua script. You can use this script also from the com­mand line. Li­cense: LPPL Changes in v1.9: * com­pat­i­bil­ity fix for lu­a­tex v0.85+ * Bug­fix: re­store some op­tion de­faults to guar­an­tee cor­rect down­load URLs af­ter chang­ing mode in \getmap
The pack­age's Cat­a­logue en­try can be viewed at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/getmap The pack­age's files them­selves can be in­spected at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/getmap/

getmap – Down­load OpenStreetMap maps for use in doc­u­ments

The pack­age pro­vides a sim­ple in­ter­face to OpenStreetMap, and to Google Maps “map im­ages”. In the sim­plest case, it is suf­fi­cient to spec­ify the ad­dress you need (if you don’t, the pack­age will use its own de­fault).

The pack­age loads the map im­age us­ing an ex­ter­nal lua script (in­voked via \write 18: must be run­ning with \write 18 en­abled).

The (“ex­ter­nal”) lua script may be used from the com­mand line; a bash ver­sion is pro­vided.
