This page is only for customers with a previous Maps APIs for Work or Maps API for Business license. This page is not applicable to customers with the new Google Maps Platform Premium Plan, which became available in January 2016.
Each request for an image from either the Street View Static API or Maps Static API counts as a single page view against your purchased quota. Your quota is shared across all applications and IP addresses using your client ID.
When you have used all of your purchased quota, you will need to renew your license promptly. If you need higher usage limits, please contact your Google Maps APIs for Work Account Manager for purchase information.
Google Maps image API reports are available from the Google Cloud Console.
- Log in to the Cloud Console.
- In the left navigation panel, click Maps: Usage Report.
Maps Static API usage is reflected in the Static v2 column and Street View Static API usage is reflected in the Street View column of the reports.
To track usage across different applications using the same client ID,
you may provide an optional
channel parameter with your requests. By
channel values for different aspects of your
application, you can determine precisely how your application is used.
For example, your externally-facing website may access the API using a
channel set to
customer while your internal marketing department may
channel set to
mkting. Your reports will break down usage by
channel parameter must use the following format:
- Must be an ASCII alphanumeric string.
- Period (
.), underscore (
_) and hyphen (
-) characters are allowed.
channelparameter is case-insensitive; upper-case, mixed-case, and lower-cased
channelparameters will be merged into their lower-case equivalent. For example, usage on the
CUSTOMERchannel will be combined with the usage on the
channelvalue must be a static value assigned per application instance, and must not be generated dynamically. You may not use
channelvalues to track individual users, for example.
Up to 2,000 distinct channels can be used, per client ID.
