    Default google maps

    Hi
    I think if Google maps (with its API) can be included in a commercial BI appication. AS SteelWheel. Is it possible?

    If you don't mind paying Google £10000 a year you are more than welcome to use it. If not check out OpenLayers and OpenStreetMaps for an open source alternative

    Google API Terms and Conditions stipulates that your website has to be internet facing and I assume you don't want all your data visible on ther internet

    Default confused

    I'm confused if I wanna build a dashboard like the demo for googlemaps integration with my customers on the map color coded etc, I have to pay Google googles of money? Or can I do it for free? This would not be for resale but for company internal use.

    Google charges for the use of their maps and api internally, although its pretty well hidden in the T&C's. We use geonames.org and open street maps which are both free.
