Submission + - Google Maps to charge for API usage (bbc.co.uk)

RdeCourtney writes: The BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-15523050 is reporting that from 1 January 2012, Google will charge for the Google Maps API service when more than the limit of 25,000 map "hits" are made in a day.

Google is rumoured to be charging $4 per 1,000 views in excess of the limit.

Google maintains the high limit of 25,000 free hits before charging "will only affect 0.35% of users".
