Google Maps API
A single map load is charged when any of the following occur:
- An application requests a single map image from the Google Static Maps API.
- An application requests a single panorama image from the Google Street View Image API.
- After a web page or application loads a map, a static map image, or a Street View panorama, any user interactions with it, such as panning, zooming, or switching map layers, do not generate additional map loads or affect usage limits.
