Error on Forward Lookup in GEO Tagging

Post by Paul Harris » 08 Feb 19 4:08

I have updated my Google Maps API and enabled the Javascript and Geotagging APIs. Everything, including Reverse Lookup works fine, except Forward Lookup returns an error:

Error: This API project is not authorized to use this API
Status: REQUEST_DENIED

Same message when I try to retrieve altitude. Do I need additional APIs?

Since I don't have time to go to Google Programming School, can anyone surmise why I am getting this error?

Much appreciated,

Paul

Make sure that your Google API key has the Elevation API configured.

Thanks, Hert, that has the Altitude Import working, but I can't seem to find what is preventing me from doing a Forward Lookup :?

What Services do your have added now to your Google API key?

You should have:
1. Geocoding API
2. Maps Javascript API
3. Maps Elevation API

Yes, those are the three that I have enabled. But when I do a straight Lookup I get:

Error: This IP, site or mobile application is not authorized to use this API key. Request received from IP address 104.190.227.110 with empty referer
Status: REQUEST_DENIED

Check the restrictions of your Google API key and make sure that you either restrict it with IP address and not with a HTTP-referrer.

(Credentials, click the edit pen icon, Application Restrictions)

That seems to have done it.

Thanks, Hert

Best,
