Dear all,

I managed to setup google maps API's for Germany, France, Spain, USA easily.

Does anybody know when maps for Switzerland will go online at least as a beta version? It is not possible to search for addresses in Switzerland yet. F.e Hauptstrasse 129, CH-8272 Ermatingen or Hauptstrasse 129, 8272 Ermatingen, Switzerland.

I also have problems to search for addresses in Ireland, since they dont have a postal code. Any Idea how to map Ireland?

I also wonder when does maps Germany beta turns itself to be full version.
What does BETA means in this content of mapping? Does it mean, that not all addresses/streets are mapped yet?

nice Greetings from Germany,

Marta Gal

Hi Martal

Versuch mal:

Sidenote: is older than Google Maps and used "AJAX" before it was named like that.

Thank you Corsin. is great and very popular in Switzerland. The APIs comes from and each search transaction costs some cents (depending on transaktion volume of searc querys) and setup fee is 5000 €.

+ each other zoom transaction costs "a 0,0x cent" ....ehhh by endoxxon and you need to pay at least 4000 € per YEAR for 200 000 search transaktions. (Even if you dont make 200 000 transaktion)

OK...this is a google blog. I am serousely searching for someone, who knows, when Switzerland will be mapped by GOOGLE . And how to map Ireland with GOOGLE :-)

As long as Endoxon does not update their imagery, Google want have an update.
Drop me a note and I might ask somebody from Switzerland, but don't be to hopeful...

Hey Corsin,

I believe the best way is to get Postal Code from to the Address Database and then, map only a that area.

This sounds great: ...

1st entry is for Ermatingen:
1 Ermatingen Switzerland populated place 0.04 km

I believe, now, I can not get any closer to Street name....
