MapsService Question

Hello, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I was unable to find a forum for the MapService service specifically.

I am running a job once a day on ~2000 address records to get their Geocodes. Below is the request:

http://local.yahooapis.com/MapsService/V1/...<address>

Everything is going swimmingly until ~450 records are processed. At this point, the service stops returning coordinates. I get no HTTP error messages or cURL errors, just no response.

Do I need to sleep the process in-between requests in order to space them out? I am aware of the 5000 per day limit.

  • There's a limit on how many requests per day (as you mentioned) but also how quickly you hit it. The problem may be that, or it may be something else entirely. I'm not sure. You could ask this in the maps group, since they are the experts. The Maps group is here: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/yws-maps/

    Cheers!

    I'm having the same issue. Did you find a resolution?
