Lat and Long not being returned from geocoded postcode?!


Recommended Posts

Hi, My codes does not show any Latitude or Longitude but it did last night when I started writing this code?!


$postcode = 'BN113ED';
$response = file_get_contents('http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=' . urlencode($postcode) . '&sensor=true');
$response = json_decode($response);
$lat = $response->results[0]->geometry->location->lat;
$long = $response->results[0]->geometry->location->lng;


here is the URL that shows the JSON

["results"]=> array(0) { } ["status"]=> string(16) "OVER_QUERY_LIMIT" } lat NULL long NULL // $qr = "SELECT * FROM pubs WHERE rsTown = 'Worthing'"; // // $res= mysql_query($qr); // $i=0; // while($row = mysql_fetch_array($res)) // { // $postcode = $row["rsPostCode"]; // $response = file_get_contents('http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=' . urlencode($postcode) .
