Google Maps API Key

Get an API Key

Google offers an easy wizard for setting up a new API key.


You need to provide payment information when setting up a new key. Google charges for map views, but all new accounts get $200/month free usage credit, which is enough for thousands of map views. For high-volume sites, please see Google’s pricing page.

FAQ and Securing Your Key

Please see the MapPress FAQ for additional information and details about how to secure your API key. It’s usually easiest to start with an unsecured key, get everything working, and then add security.
