I wish to use Google Maps API in my website to embed a map of Israel with details of roads and streets. However, when I use it, I cannot see any road details, even that such information is available on maps.google.com.

Any idea why that is? Can it be resolved?

  • You don't get any details? I can see road names for most (but not all) of the roads in Israel. – Adam Thompson Feb 28 '11 at 3:00
  • It doesn't work for me either. Can see roads and cities all around but not at Israel – user9946 Apr 4 '11 at 14:30

According to a Google employee in this thread, Google Maps is "not contractually allowed to expose the high quality Israel data in the API at this time." I am assuming this is for security reasons.

You can keep track of their Map coverage here.

  • it is a licensing issue – Joel H Apr 8 '11 at 0:51
