Some colleagues who use Geonames a lot notice that you can no longer link directly to the maps. This is causing them a little hassle.

I notice the text "(we need to reduce the cost for the map views)" on each page now. Can someone expand on this?

Is it possible to pay a subscription service to re-enable the old way?

In Mid July google has increased dramatically the price for googlemaps. Our first reaction was to switch to leaflet with HERE aerial tiles.
However, this turned out to me too costly too.

Then we have disabled the default view of the map. It is now only displayed when a user explicitly clicks on the map icon.

Did you see the icon? How exactly are you opening the map?

We will need to learn what the users need and how we can implement it best without incurring too much cost for us.

Best Regards
