Google Introduces Usage Limits To Maps API [googlegeodevelopers.blogspot.com]
When the Maps API Terms of Service were updated in April of this year we announced that usage limits would be introduced to the Maps API starting on October 1st. With October upon us, Id like to provide an update on how these limits are being introduced, and the impact it will have on your Maps API sites.

The usage limits that now apply to Maps API sites are documented in the Maps API FAQ. However no site exceeding these limits will stop working immediately. We understand that developers need time to evaluate their usage, determine if they are affected, and respond if necessary. There are three options available for sites that are exceeding the limits:

  • Reduce your usage to below the limits
  • Opt-in to paying for your excess usage at the rates given in the FAQ
  • Purchase a Maps API Premier license
  • Staffa

    When I read in the title of recent posts : "Introduces Usage Limits" first thing I thought of was "next, they'll ask for money".

    I'm becoming too lenient; they are asking already in the same statement ;o)
