The video looks cool on . It shows how Google maps can be brought as a layer in ArcGIS. But the site www.xyzmap.com does not say anything on the validity of this tool, as to how long it will last before Google bans it, if...well I am presuming, the tool is without the permission of Google Inc. It is priced $69, not a big money to lose anyway.

So what do you think, the future holds, all such services yahoomaps, microsoftmaps, and so on if available as layers, not vector but raster ....but still it is great to have a background if you want to use the data on Google maps, somehow. Any views...
