internally-hosted WMS/WFS layer on top of Google Maps/OSM/Bing Maps. These
are easy in OpenLayers 2. However, this feat -especially Google Maps- is not
supported anymore in OL3.The book "OpenLayers 3 Beginner's Guide" page
107:/OpenLayers 2 had some third-party mapping APIs embedded into its core,
enabling you to use its maps inside your Openlayers-based application.
Nowadays, for better decoupling of OpenLayers API from third-party APIs, the
OpenLayers 3 team choose to have no support for other mapping APIs that tie
decision?One of the main goals of OpenLayers 3 was to rewrite OpenLayers 2,
making its API cleaner. The support for Google Maps API in OpenLayers 2 has
also put a significant maintenance burden on both library and application
developers, to keep up with changes of the Google Maps API. To avoid this in
OpenLayers 3, the support for Google Maps using Google Maps API is
nonexistent. However, Google does provide its tiles independent from their
API, but only to paying customers. Fortunately, you have more alternatives
to Google Maps API (Bing, OSM)./I found this awesome solution
<https://stackoverflow.com/a/33993878/4795725> in OpenLayers. I tried it
myself that it works with OpenLayers 4.1.1 and Leaflet 0.7.7.Can anyone
elaborate more on:1. how OL3 can access Google Maps tile independent from
their API ?2. whether the above solution in stackoverflow is the answer of
my question #1?3. what sort of payment/contract ? Is it the same with the
Google Maps API Premium ?
