There is java program that can access google tiles in JOSM (java app
for OSM editing).  While JOSM was developed primarily for OSM editing,
you can use it outside OSM.  I also use JOSM in some mapping projects
because the editing functions are better than most GIS apps I use.

However, any edits derived from big G's tiles shouldn't be uploaded in
the OSM database.   Full discussion here:

Please resist any temptation to click the "UPLOAD" button when you are
using this Google WMS program.
