I noticed this unexpected behavior too today. Anybody know why? And how to work around the problem?

Basically, the Places API doesn't provide well-known places within a radius of a certain location via nearbysearch. Which it should. Which do both Google Maps itself and the Geocoding API as illustrated in the link below.

For those of you working with Google Street View, Business View or Views via the API, please check and star this issue: https://code.google.com/p/gmaps-api-issues/issues/detail?id=7376 so we can have a usable rendering of the images back - Why oh why did you guys remove the WebGL support?!

I am trying to figure out a way to store and display a large KML file in QuickBase using the Google Maps API.  It is a parcel basemap that I would like to have label the address.  I have about 48,000 records.   I have tried Google Fusion tables but I keep running into the data limit and labels are not working.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.  Thank you!

Tips & Tricks  - 
 
I'm trying to connect a Google Form, Spreadsheet, and map from Maps Engine Lite.  It seems that maps only import the data from a Google Sheet once - they don't make an actual real-time connection between the two.  Is that the case?  If so, is there any way to force a refresh in Maps Engine Lite (or Pro), either through the API or some other way?

I've done some coding in Google Scripts, but haven't worked with HTML requests through Google's API, so any help that you could give would be appreciated.

Hi +Paul Swanson
Exactly. To be honest, sometimes works and others doesn't
(I'm not criticizing the work, by the way. :)

Does anyone know the workaround to the fact that Google Maps API code does not render correctly on a blogspot blog post? The same API code works just fine on WordPress. I hope that it is some simple setting. You could even take a simple fusion map, select publish and "Get HTML and JavaScript" and the map fails to render correctly after you cut and paste the code into a blogspot site. Please Help.

I have lately had problems with one of the enterprise accounts that I´m working on. The company has several sites where I have included a standard google search. As the company has an enterprise account with Google, it should allow up to 100,000 clicks/day, but it redirects all domains after only 2500 clicks to a standard output. Does it have to do with the fact that all domains access through one IP address? Even though, there should not be 100,000 clicks/day for all domains.

I think its the issue related to Google custome search api. Not Google maps api.

Hola, en relación a Google Maps, me gustaría saber cómo se puede añadir a Mis mapas una capa Georreferenciada y que además puede tener más o menos visibilidad, tal como se ve en el enlace. ¿Necesitaría alguna aplicación específica de Google?. Muchas gracias.

Interns India for google Maps API

We are new at the community. We are a german travel company www.lisa-sprachreisen.de based in Germany and India. We develope in India software. We are looking for good interns from India and rest of the world to work on Google Maps Api. Good interns get a contract with our german company.

We would like to have a question. The best Google-Map we have seen is Google-Flights. Can somebody program this look and feel (location & price) by using a Google Drive Database?

Many regards

LISA! Sprachreisen

Anyone familiar with shp file conversion in shpescape? Trying to create a state township file to upload to Google Fusion Maps. I prepared a zip file file (.shp, .dbf, .shx, etc). Source files here: https://apps.ohiodnr.gov/gims/response.asp?county=Statewide&category=Administrative

When I take the zipfile to shpescape I get:

OGRException at /ft/upload/
Could not open the datasource at "/projects/tmp/odnr_township.shp"
Request Method: POST
Request URL: http://www.shpescape.com/ft/upload/
Django Version: 1.4.13
Exception Type: OGRException
Exception Value:
Could not open the datasource at "/projects/tmp/odnr_township.shp"
Exception Location: /projects/shape-escape/django/contrib/gis/gdal/datasource.py in _init_, line 77

Hi, maybe it would be more comprehensible to convert the data directly by means of GDAL on your own machine
an example from http://www.gdal.org/drv_geojson.html 
ogr2ogr -f "ESRI Shapefile" cities.shp http://featureserver/cities/.geojson OGRGeoJSON
