Google Maps API key

Please note that the changes mentioned below came into effect on the 11th of June 2018 and have been implemented by Google (applies to all websites) and we are outside of our control.

From June 2018 Google Maps have made big changes to the way they allow the use of their Google Maps API. In short, the following is important to note:

  1. All accounts now require a linked credit card in the Google API Console;
  2. All users will get up to 28.000 map requests per month and 40.000 direction calls per month, free of charge. Other rates and limits found here: Pricing for Google Maps.
  3. Nothing is required from our users except for the fact that they will need to add a credit card to their Google Console account if they haven’t done so already.

To create API key visit Google Maps Platform and click Get Started button.
In opened popup window check Maps, Routes and Places and click “Continue”. Maps activate map functionality, Routes activate functionalities for "Nearby Places" and Places activate geocoding functionalities.
After that select (or create new) project and set up your billing.

When API key will be created you need to do next:

  1. Copy API Key.
  2. Go Wealty Options > Map > Google Maps API key.
  3. Replace the default/current API key with newly created API key.

If you added new key and map still doesn’t work, please, make sure that required APIs were activated:

  • Directions API
  • Distance Matrix API
  • Geocoding API
  • Geolocation API
  • Maps Elevation API
  • Maps Embed API
  • Maps JavaScript API
  • Maps SDK for Android
  • Maps SDK for iOS
  • Maps Static API
  • Places API
  • Roads API
  • Street View Publish API
  • Street View Static API
  • Time Zone API

Also, in API key settings in "Application restrictions" select "HTTP referrers (web sites). And in "Website restrictions" add your website link (it will guarantee that API key will work only on your website, even if someone will try to use it on other website. Your website URL must be added next way:

  • HTTP protocol:  http://*.yourdomain.com/*
  • HTTPS protocol (website uses SSL certificate): https://*.yourdomain.com/*

It may take some time for changes to be applied. In about 5-10 minutes you can open your website and check if maps are working.

Mapbox token

To create token you need to register first on Mapbox website. You will need to confirm you email address after registration.

All Mapbox users get up to 50.000 map requests per month and 50.000 direction calls per month, free of charge. Other rates and limits found here: Plans & Pricing.

After that in your account click on "Create a token" button. In the appeared page add token name and check if these options are enabled (usually they are enabled by default):

  • styles: titles
  • styles: read
  • fonts: read
  • datasets: read
  • vision:read

Also is recommended to add your website URL. It will work as restrictions and API key will work only on your website. When token will be created, copy it and paste in Wealty Options > Map > Mapbox token.

Your token must be public, that begins with pk. Public token is created when you enable only Public scopes while creating token.

Note: If you want to use Mapbox on your website, you need to add both Google Maps API key and Mapbox token.
You may wonder why do you need to create both API keys if you want to use Mapbox on the website? Mapbox is an "overlay" for Google Maps that just provides different map layout, but all map functionalities (Street View, Nearby places, etc.) are still provided by Google Maps.

Yelp
