In this exercise, we will test your your
Google API key by using the
Geocoding API in the browser.
Go to https://google-developers.appspot.com/maps/documentation/utils/geocoder/ and search for “Tower at Cityplace (N Haskell Ave STE 250, Dallas, TX 75204)”.
Geocode button, and see the visual representation of the Google Geocoding API response.
JSON link to open the API response as a JSON object.
You may see an error message indicating the API requests are being rate limited. Notice the URL does not include any Google API key in the query string parameters.
Add your Google API key into the URL as a query string parameter. This will use your API key to call the Geocoding API and return the JSON response object.
