This client acts as a Java library for 5 map-related Google APIs. Using the library, developers can create geocoding applications that consume the Google Directions API, Distance Matrix API, Elevation API, Geocoding API, and Time Zone API. The client is community supported, and requires Java 1.7 or later as well as a Google Maps API key for use.
This is the first part of our series How to Add Postcode-Based Proximity Search With Open Data. In this article we will explain how to geocode a dataset using open data. By the end of this article, you should be able to take a dataset and add the position of each record to that dataset.
Over two years after Google originally announced the end of the Google Earth API, Google will finally sunset the API today. January 11, 2017 is the official sunset date that many had hoped Google would continue to delay. The popular API is based on the outdated NPAPI plugin framework.
