Beginning June 11, no more free API key for Google Maps (now Google Maps Platform) if you don't provide a credit card.

A lot of custom Google maps that have been created over the years will likely no longer work.

@sigon Do you have an idea how embedding maps in general will be possible without the explicit consent of a user after 25th of may? #GDPR

@dosch
not an expert on GDPR, but why we should need user consent on a web map?.

@sigon
Because you are sharing personal information of your visitors (ip address) with a 3rd party without their consent

@sigon
I am breaking my mind on how to fix this...

@sigon For using leafletjs with the hugo page builder I got something for you ;) github.com/L1am0/hugo-leaflet

@l1am0
Thanks! I'll take a look 😃

@sigon Any tips for migration of data out of Google Maps and into OpenStreetMap?

@brianpoe
If you take a look at the leafletJS page you'll see some tutorials to create simple maps, for the basemap you can use openstreetmap instead of a google one.
