Changes to BatchGeo’s Free Maps

Over 250,000 active users have created more than 10 million BatchGeo maps! We’re delighted to help so many people visualize their location data.

As you might imagine, providing maps at that scale is expensive. For 10 years, we’ve supported our service with the fast and flexible BatchGeo Pro. Our customers, heavy map users who value additional speed and features, have enabled us to continue to offer a generous free plan.

Recently Google caused some concerns when it announced new pricing for its map service, which BatchGeo is built upon. Previously, we’ve used the free version of Google Maps for our own free maps. Due to the changes, we need to find a new approach for the most popular free maps.

We need to make sure we can cover the additional costs. Currently we are proactively reaching out to free users with extremely high usage to upgrade to a paid plan. We hope the value we’ve provided over the years is worth a small subscription fee.

At the same time, the team is working on a way to view your usage, so you know whether you’ll need to upgrade. At this point, action is only required if you’ve heard from us.

Questions about BatchGeo Pricing

Is BatchGeo still free?

Yes, you can create basic maps on BatchGeo for no charge. Due to changes in Google’s pricing, we’ve had to limit users with significant usage of our free maps.

What happens if I don’t subscribe to BatchGeo?

If you received an email from us, your usage may become limited without subscribing to BatchGeo. We may restrict new maps and your current maps may not be viewable.
