Note: Google Maps has changed the “3D off” feature. Now turn off globe, above the traffic setting to get a 2D satellite map (texture).

Note: All suggested heightmap services are not part of the 3D Map Generator – Terrain. They are just options for getting a grayscale heightmap. There is no guarantee of availability or functionality.
