Is it possible to use Google Maps as the background map provider in PTV Vissim?

Due to licensing restrictions, Google Maps cannot be used as the interactive live map provider in PTV Vissim. The available map providers currently are Bing Maps and OpenStreetMap.
You could take a series of screenshots from any map service and add and manually tile them in the Network Editor as Background Images.
For more information on using background images, refer to the following help page: https://cgi.ptvgroup.com/vision-help/VISSIM_11_ENG/#5_Netzbearbeiten/Hintergrundgrafiken_einfuegen.htm
