Geocoding error “OVER_QUERY_LIMIT”





If you are getting the error OVER_QUERY_LIMIT when trying to geocode an address with Google set as geocoding provider, this means that you exceeded the Google Maps Platform web services usage limits by:

  • sending too many requests per day or e.g. by
  • sending requests too fast, i.e. too many requests per second

The above problems can be address by combining two approaches:

  1. Lowering usage, by optimizing applications to use the web services more efficiently.
  2. Increasing usage limits, when possible, by purchasing additional allowance for your Google Maps APIs for Work license.

We´d suggest to login to your Google API console and check and adjust your usage limits there.

As an alternative you can switch to another geocoding provider.
