Frequently Asked Questionsback to top

What can I use the API for?

The world is your javascript-enabled oyster! We are almost 6 years late, but we believe the best is yet to come! Come on, let your creative juices flow and show us what you are capable of building!

How much does it cost to use the API?

The API is free to use for up to 200,000 map loads a year. If you require more map loads or enterprise support, contact us for the pricing.

Why is the API similar to Google Maps API?

We believe that map APIs should be interoperable. It doesn't make sense for us to create a Gothere Maps API that locks you into using our services. By creating an API that is similar to the Google Maps API, a developer who is already using the Google Maps API will be able to switch over to the Gothere Maps API in a matter of minutes.

Can I use the API commercially?

Yes, you can use the API commercially. However, do check our terms of service to find out what kind of services are against our terms.

Can I use the API in an intranet?

No. The API can only be used in a publicly available website or application. However, drop us a note and we can work something out.

I need help with the API. Where do I go?

Visit our developer forum! Post your question there and we promise we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Besides, you can look at what other developers are up to.
