Hi, I'm trying to set up the mapping service to display a satellite or hybrid view... can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance!

Solved:
In survey_runtime.js
I added this string:

map.setMapType(G_HYBRID_MAP);

after this one

var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById("gmap_canvas_" + question));

You can add map controls or set the default map type in scripts/survey_runtime.js.

Find this line:
map.addControl(new GSmallMapControl());

And insert this line after it:
map.addControl(new GMapTypeControl());

To set the default map type, add this line next:
map.setMapType(G_SATELLITE_MAP);

The most common map types are:
- G_NORMAL_MAP displays the default road map view.
- G_SATELLITE_MAP displays Google Earth satellite images.
- G_HYBRID_MAP displays a mixture of normal and satellite views.
- G_PHYSICAL_MAP displays a physical map based on terrain information.

Cheers,
Tony Partner

The code has changed.

Here is the current method for updating from ROADMAP to HYBRID:

Change this:

mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP

to this:

mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.HYBRID

Unfortunately the solutions offered so far do require a change of the core files.
In case of a version update they will be gone, nor does everyone have the ability to change the core files by themselves.

The following codelines can be put into the template.js file (which can be edited by a normal LimeSurvey administrator) and adjusted as seen fit.
$(document).ready(function(){
 
    $.each(gmaps, function( mapid, map ) {
        if (mapid.indexOf("marker")==-1)
            map.setMapTypeId(google.maps.MapTypeId.HYBRID);
    });
 
});
 

In this example the map type is set to hybrid. That way only the survey using the particular template is affected. Valid values are

HYBRID Displays a photographic map + roads and city names
ROADMAP Displays a normal, default 2D map
SATELLITE Displays a photographic map
TERRAIN Displays a map with mountains, rivers, etc.
