Geocoding and API Key

Jan 22, 2014 at 2:48 AM
I am attempting to use the Google Geocoding Plugin. It calls for a Google Map API key. The plugin references the url where I can get an API key. That url suggests that a key is optional and directs me to a different url if I still want one. I've gone through the steps for generating the key and entered it into the plugin; however, the Geocoder still does not find any addresses I've entered. For example, I've entered "300 W. Washington St., Greensboro, NC, USA" without success.

Has anyone successfully used the plugin and tell me what I'm doing wrong?

This plug-in is a bit out-dated since Google change stuff on its side.

Somebody needs to update this plug-in first to make it work again.

I'm still learning the protocol on this stuff. Do I submit a bug report, or does the current thread fulfill that requirement?

Thanks for your patience.

No need to issue a bug report, I even think one already exists.
This thread will be enough.
Don't hold your breath while waiting for this. It could take a while.

The ocx will also have a simple geocoding option. Perhaps that will fit your need.
This version will take a few more weeks before it will be available.
