Note: These limits apply to the Google Maps Geocoding API service, whether used for server-side geocoding or client-side. Client-side and server-side requests consume quota from the server-side equivalent API. If you are geocoding data in response to user input on the web, or on a mobile device, consider using client side geocoding.
These limits are enforced to prevent abuse and/or repurposing of the Google Maps Geocoding API, and may be changed in the future without notice. Additionally, we enforce a request rate limit to prevent abuse of the service. If you exceed the per-day limit or otherwise abuse the service, the Google Maps Geocoding API may stop working for you temporarily. If you continue to exceed this limit, your access to the Google Maps Geocoding API may be blocked.
