    Google Maps API Key Guide

    The Google Maps platform protects its products from unauthorized use by limiting API calls to authenticated users with proper credentials (i.e., an API key, this is a unique alphanumeric string that associates a Google billing account with the project and the specific API/SDK).

    The API key is a UID (unique identifier), which authenticates all requests associated with the project for usage and billing purposes.

    Note

    Users must have at least one API key associated with the project.

    Pre-Requisites

    A project with a billing account and the Maps JavaScript API are required before you can start. See Set up in Cloud Console for further information.

    1. Create a new: "Google cloud project" in the Cloud console: Create new project.
    2. Fill in the required details:

      Project name

      Use the default name or enter a customized name. You can change the project name at any time. For further information, see Identifying projects.

      Project ID

      Use the default or click "EDIT" to add a "Customized ID" that "Google APIs" use as a unique identifier for the project.

      Important Note

      Once you have created the project, you cannot change the Project ID. With this in mind, select an ID you'll be comfortable using for the project's lifetime (do not include any sensitive information in "Project ID.").

      Billing account

      Select a billing account for the project. This option is only displayed if you have more than one billing account.

      Permissions

      Users must be a "Billing account administrator" or "Project billing manager" to associate a project with the billing account. For further information, see the billing access control documentation.

      Location
