What is Google Maps Platform?
Google combines its services and APIs relating to interactive map applications in the Google Maps Platform. Anyone who wishes to use map applications with Google Maps must create a billing account – either online directly with Google or through us as a Google Cloud Partner.
Since summer 2018 the Google Maps Platform has replaced the Google Maps Standard Plan and the Google Maps Premium Plan. Since then, no distinction has been made as to whether or not the use is of a commercial nature. In technical terms the APIs remain the same; only the settlement modalities and pricing structure have changed.
Here you will find the answers to the most frequently asked questions about migration, licensing, and integration of the Google Maps Platform.
