Tutorial: Create a field data collection app for groundwater studies

2. Project preparation

2.2. Add online layers and make available offline

If you have internet connectivity in the field, you can use a WM(T)S or online XYZ tiles as your background map. In the previous section we've already added the OSM Standard layer. In this section we'll also add Google Satellite to our survey project. We'll also make the online layers offline available just in case we don't have internet connectivity in the field.

Let's first add Google Satellite to the project.

1. In the main menu go to Web | QuickMapServices | Google | Google Satellite.

Now we can clearly see the pivots.
