Yesterday we reviewed our usage of GoogleMaps in couple of places on this website.

We found that it was no longer working, and while we could get it running with current Google Cloud Platform APIs, this is no longer free.

We’ve taken steps to remove GoogleMaps completely, as the pricing structure Google is charging is not viable for this website.

Given the GoogleMap usage was fairly basic, we’ll look to return this functionality through either something like OpenLayers, or simply handle it ourselves.

The removal of GoogleMaps will likely improve your privacy on this website anyway, so we are happy with that move.
