    Locator Razor package suddenly stopped working?

    Hi folks,

    We appear to be having an issue with all our live websites which use this package with google maps - basically any page which uses it is failing to load and just times out.

    Has anyone else encountered problems?

    Cheers,

    Jamie

    Forgot to add that the package still works fine in our local development environment, it's just on the live websites it seems to have suddenly stopped working :/

    Maybe you've hit the google usage limit https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/usage?hl=nl

    Any js errors ?

    Or a new doc that doesn't have the coordinates stored causing issues...

    Hi Tim, thanks for replying so quickly.

    I think we appear to be over the query limit, so every time we call the line - GeoResponse r = GoogleGeoCoder.CallGeoWS(Request["s"]); - it's empty because the API is returning a status of "OVER_QUERY_LIMIT".

    Don't suppose you've any ideas how we can get around this??  If we got an API key per site then would that help to split up the usage between all sites using the package?

    Doesn't work with api keys anymore so guess you'll need to purchase additional quota from google https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/usage

    Cheers for your help.  

    I thought at first there was no way we'd hit the limit since it's 25,000 a day, then I discovered that the limit for the Geocoding API is a lot less (2,500 apparently).

    Had a dig about one of our recently launched websites and think we've found some unnecessary (and frequent) calls to the API which may have caused us to reach the quota. Hopefully our quota resets back to 0 tomorrow!

    Jamie
