Open Street Maps

Please see if you can integrate it – it will be more useful than Google Maps – because it will always be free.
Also until you do so – is there a way – to put Country – City etc in to the Attributes and then have sorting as per city for various ads – in Search etc.
This will mean that one has to import a big list of cities etc – can you help with that ?
I’ll check if it’s possible, but so far there’s no reliable solution for autocompleting places via OpenStreetMap yet https://www.reddit.com/r/openstreetmap/comments/ex0hte/does_openstreetmap_have_autocomplete_places/
I heard of this – OpenLayers
How is that ?
Even if we can just Autocomplete towns and cities – not detailed addresses – it will be a good solution – if its free.
Mapbox seems to allow 50,000 requests daily too – can it be added too ?
Thanks Ihor for trying to explore options.
I found Pelias – claims it is Free – Open Source and can do Autocomplete from Addresses too
Thanks Ihor – you mentioned installation of Photon in own server – can I do this in my web host ? Please guide on this too. Thank you very much
Unfortunately, it’s not so easy because it should be installed manually on the server level. They offer a web service that requires no installation (like Google Maps), but it’s pricey. I’ll check the Mapbox, please consider using Google Maps for now, at least for the free trial period of 1 year so you can decide later.
During this trial period of 1 year – if I give my credit card details – i will not be charged anything ?
Even if it gets used much much more than the free limits – i am scared of some bots or something misusing it – and my credit card bill killing me 🙂
Please advise – i never saw the 1 year free clause on google api – that is why i am worried.
As far as I know, they send an email notification before the free trial ends, and require a confirmation to start billing. I use the free trial on the demo site for HivePress.ihor3 weeks, 2 days agodeveloper
There’s no ETA for this feature yet.
