Here at MapQuest, we’re focused on improving our products and solutions to meet our customer needs. We make a point to listen to our customers and incorporate their feedback when evaluating our offerings and prioritizing new features. Today, we’re happy to announce one of our top offerings is now available to our Business  and Business Plus customers — Extended Rights Geocoding (ERG) license.

Extended Rights Geocoding

Extended Rights Geocoding give you the flexibility to display geocode results on a MapQuest map, an alternative provider’s map, or no map at all. We make it easy for you to pinpoint the best combination of location-based providers to meet your needs and your budget. Additionally, you can store the geocode results within your own database as long as you have an active agreement with MapQuest.

Who is eligible?

Customers with a Business Enhanced, Business Plus Enhanced plan, and Enterprise customers. To upgrade your existing self-serve plan, got to “My Plan” and click on “Change Plan.” For Enterprise customers, reach out to your Sales Rep or Account Manager for more information.

Additional Key for ERG

With our ERG licenses comes an additional key that is required for any geocode requests in which you wish to store the results or display the results on another provider’s map. The key will be sent via email upon signing up.

Pricing

Self-serve customers can purchase a license for an additional $100/month on either the Business Enhanced or Business Plus Enhanced plan, for a total of a $499/month or $899/month agreement. The transaction limits for these plans are 200,000 and 500,000 respectively. View plan details here. Customers are required to commit to a 6 month agreement, and they will be billed on a monthly basis.
