Terms of use

We designed plus codes to be used as broadly as possible. We are excited by the potential of plus codes to map areas that were previously unavailable, and we can’t wait to see how developers use this technology.

To that end, we have made plus codes available for all to use under the Apache 2.0 license. As such, plus codes are available for a broad range of use - commercial and non-commercial alike. You may also use the plus code logo in connection with an application or website that incorporates the plus code design.

Developers interested in using plus codes may access the open source packages on GitHub. The Google Maps APIs also support plus codes and serve as another avenue for interested developers. Please do not use this site for development as it is designed primarily to share information about plus codes.
