Most of us are aware of and have used web mapping services such as Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps or Microsoft Maps (Live Search Maps). Although all these services offer detailed maps of the world for online viewing, none of them support downloading or saving map images to users hard drives. This is where Universal Maps Downloader (UMD) comes in. It’s a small piece of software that allows you to download small tile images from the online mapping service of your choice and save them to your hard drive for offline viewing. You can also combine these tile images to create larger and more complete maps using UMD.

You might also want to check out Google Maps Downloader if you like this software. UMD seems to be better as it supports multiple online mapping services.
