All Maps Embed API requests are available free of charge and have unlimited use. Like most other Google services, Google Maps is also free. This also applies to the integration of Google Maps on the website itself. However, there is a small drawback.
Google has now decided that the use of the Google Maps APIs is only free of charge up to 25,000 users per day. If you get more, you'll have to pay. In general, the fees do not apply to the non-commercial use of the application. What is considered commercial and what is not commercial is decided by Google itself.
In this blog post, we'll take an in-depth look at ten alternatives to Google's iconic web map service and analyze their advantages and disadvantages compared to Google Maps. With so many free mapping APIs available, you have plenty of options for building powerful map applications. Each of these free APIs has its advantages and disadvantages, so be sure to research them thoroughly to find the one that best suits your needs. You can't use Google Earth content in digital ads, unless you work directly with a Google advertising team.
Please note that you cannot use the results of Google Earth, Google Earth Pro and Earth Studio to reconstruct 3D models or create similar content, or to create other content, products or services that may violate our Terms of Service. Google Maps is a free web map service (for desktops, mobile phones and tablets) developed by Google. Not only is Google Maps a great help for people with a bad sense of direction, but it also offers an appropriate use for businesses. Keep in mind that if (a) you insert a classic map, a Street View panoramic or My Map; (b) you use one of our APIs on the web or in an application; or (c) you use Google Earth Pro or Earth Studio on the desktop, then the necessary attribution is already integrated into the map and you don't need any other credit.
Street View images can only be used in digital ads where (the images) come directly from the Google Maps APIs or (the images are embedded or linked to your website) using the HTML and URL that appear on Google Maps. If you want to use Google Maps, Google Earth or Street View for other business purposes (i.e., “for sales or revenue generation”), please contact the Google Cloud customer support team. You can also check out Google Earth Pro and Earth Studio on your desktop for these purposes. Traffic jams are displayed in real time with colors ranging from light green (for fast) to dark red (for slow) on the roads on the map.
There are some specific guidelines on the use of Street View images available on both Google Maps and Google Earth. Please note that we cannot provide vector or high-resolution screenshots of Google Maps; however, you can use Google Earth Pro or Earth Studio on your computer to save and print high-resolution JPEGs. These trademarks include the Google Earth wordmark, the Google Maps wordmark, the Google Maps logo, the Google Maps red pin element, the Street View wordmark, the Pegman wordmark, and the Pegman logo.
