Google Maps Platform

Post by DavidBoggitt » Thu May 03, 2018 5:26 am

Hi All,

Presumably quite a lot of people have heard about this now (I got an email yesterday). ... -platform/

Any advice for someone like me, who has a few small low-traffic websites? An API key for each one?

Many thanks,

Hi Dave,

Same here... however I do worry more about the use of the API when it comes to retrievinge data as json or XML...

I use the api to change addresses into geolocations automatically...

will that still be "free" or do I need to leave some CC details for that as well... If that is the case, I will see to ...change my scripts and make a changeover to OpenStreetMaps....
