Get the location from Google maps directly


Is there a possibility to use Google maps directly within the survey and Get the location as an answer

A new Answertype will be added to SP v. 2.4 that will allow to search /add address/ location data throught the Google maps API, show the results on a map and add the data to the database as a voter answer.

Have you verified there's no cost associated with using Google's maps API for that? I haven't used them in a while, but I remember it costing quite a bit last time I did. I think MapQuest is a bit more lenient with their APIs so long as you give them credit - just make sure you convert to geocodes before searching the info and I've found it to be comparable to Google's.
