You will have to sign up  and also entering your payment infos but you will get a monthly 200$ voucher and only 

if you are using this service really excessively then it will cost something for you!

Re: Map with personal edition

Do you have a valid Google-Maps API Key?

Re: Map with personal edition

I used this

 

='http://maps.google.com/maps/api/staticmap?center='

&

num(var_mid_lat, '##############', '.', ',' )

&

','

&

num(var_mid_long, '##############', '.', ',' )

&

'&zoom=$(var_zoom)'

&

'&maptype='&var_maptype

&

'&size='&map_size_x&'x'&map_size_y

&

'&sensor=false'

 

You can see it in my dashboard "test2"

Re: Map with personal edition

its has definitley to do with missing API-Key.

I inserted my API-Key and it works.

So you will have to sign up for getting Google Maps API key.

Then it will work.

Re: Map with personal edition

So if you got your Googlemaps API Key, you will have to enter the API Key inside  script. (See Variable gmap_key = 'PASTE YOUR API KEY HERE')

 

and in Chart use this Dynamic Image expression:

='http://maps.google.com/maps/api/staticmap?center=' & num(var_mid_lat, '##############', '.', ',' ) & ',' & num(var_mid_long, '##############', '.', ',' ) & '&zoom=$(var_zoom)' & '&maptype='&var_maptype & '&size='&map_size_x&'x'&map_size_y & '&sensor=false'&'&key='& gmap_key
