4. Start the download.

5. Open a map project in OCAD. Your map needs to be georeferenced. To georeference a new map, you can use the New Map Wizard.

6. Go to Menu Background>Manage>Open.

7. Choose your downloaded satellite images. As they most probably do not have the same coordinate system as your map project, you need to transform the satellite images. Choose Google Mercator as coordinate system.
