Google Maps

Good Morning / Afternoon,

I have briefly searched the forum for reference on the google map but with no luck.

I am no expert by any means on these things but I am aware that google now want to charge users of the maps if they access more than a certain number of times. I refer to the map available on the FS Airlines page whereby selecting an airport opens up a map that reads "The page cant open google maps correctly" and "do you own this page". Zooming in reveals "For development purposes only"

With another unrelated application we have had the same issue with the option of selecting another map source or acquiring our own API key, which is completely over my head as to what they are talking about.

Have Google insisted on the same payment or similar from FS Airlines?

If so, what are the options please? Do we need to get our own API key or is there another map source we should use?

Thanks in Advance,

Paul S CEO FSVA

Actually they have, for some time, note that the map on the airport page the map does not give that same warning. So there is something else going on, some service I need to turn on or something. It would be a higher priority if it was stopping you from flying or anything like that. But I keep poking away at it.

Turns out google deprecated the map API we were using, updated the map for the reports so they work now, will get to the others soon.

All the maps should be working now.

Sorry I spent the week working on maps rather than cargo but it had to be done.

No apologies for anything Joe, you rock. Without you FSA would have died on the vine long ago. Thanks for all you do!
