The API is in the public domain and can be used by anyone who wants to display maps on their website or app.
The API can be used free of charge, or on a commercial basis. Free use is restricted by a number of conditions. The commercial version of the API is intended for commercial use and removes the limitations of the free version.
1. The API may only be used in projects with open access
The free version of the API is intended only for websites and applications that any internet user is allowed to access. If the website or application requires registration, it must be available to anyone. The free version of the API is not intended for projects with restricted access, such as by invitation-only or limited to employees inside a company.
2. The API may not be used in commercial projects
The free version of the API is not designed for projects that charge a fee for registration or licensing.
3. Data received via the API must be displayed on the map
The results of all API requests must be displayed on the map. For example, this applies to data obtained from the geocoding or routing services.
If you need to use data from the API without displaying it on the map, write to us .
4. Storing or changing data obtained via the API is not allowed
You may not store the data you receive from the API. For example, you aren't allowed to get data from the geocoder once and then store it for later use. Note that you are allowed to cache responses from the geocoder and router for up to 30 days.
You also may not change the data you receive from the API. For example, you aren't allowed to change the ranking of search results.
If you need to store or change data obtained using the API, write to us .
5. It is prohibited to obscure or alter the copyrights and logos on the map
The copyright information and logos must always be visible on the map. You are not allowed to move them, cover them up with other elements, obscure them, or alter them in any way. This applies to both interactive and static maps. For this reason, publishing map screenshots is not allowed. To get a static map image, you can use the Static API.
If you have a reason to obscure the copyrights or logos in your project, write to us .
6. The API may not be used for monitoring and dispatching
You are not allowed to use the map for real-time tracking of transport locations, or for automatically following a route, like a navigator.
7. The API may not be used in game projects
Game projects refer to websites and apps where the map is part of gaming experience.
8. The daily limit on API requests must not be exceeded
The API has a daily limit on the use of the geocoding, routing, and panorama services. In the free version of the API, the limit for the HTTP Geocoder is 1,000 requests per month.
