I've been trying to geocode a few addresses from a .csv file to a shapefile. Been using MMQGIS on Qgis, but, even though I seem to have everything set up properly, I continually get the error message that there was a failure to connect to maps.googleapis.com and therefore it fails to geocode any of the addresses from my excel spreadsheet. Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

  • Still working over here... maybe make sure the plugin is up to date...? – DPSSpatial Jun 27 '16 at 15:24
  • Define 'a few' :-) Is it possible you tried to geocode too many points and went over the API usage limits? You might want to retry again in a while (in case of temporary outage), perhaps with a subset of your data (in case it's API limits). – Steven Kay Jun 27 '16 at 20:19
