>From NY Times, March 20, 2012, Business Section, p. 1, col. 5, a story that
Google is raising its charges for providing maps used in on-line ads:

“If you are a site just looking to put a pizzeria on a map, it’s no big
deal, but if you are trying to put a brand around your mapping, it’s a big
deal,” said James Fee, chief evangelist at WeoGeo, which provides location
data. “Google says it will affect a very small number of users, but I have
heard it will touch 30 or 40 percent of people who really depend on maps
for their business. It could cost you tens of thousands of dollars a month.”
