I have a large batch of about 9000 addresses that require geocoding. I've read most of the documentation, and have sectioned my data into chunks of 1000 to geocode using QGIS's MMQGIS Plugin. I also used my Google API key. However, it fails to run and returns this error message:
failure connecting to maps.googleapis.com url open error [ssl: certificate_verify_failed (_ssl.c:833)
I've tried reinstalling everything (the latest python, the latest QGIS, the latest MMQGIS plugin), but the same error message appears. I even shortened my dataset to 10 addresses but it still returns the same error message.
There is definitely no issue with my API key either as when I run the URL: https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/xml?sensor=false& + address + &key= + apikey , the api works.
Anyone has any idea what might be the problem?
