When you use the Toolset Maps plugin, Views will cache every address that needs to be displayed on a map.
There are two reasons for this:
- It allows Toolset Maps fast access to the latitude and longitude coordinates. This results in a much better timing than if it fetches the data directly from the Google Maps API, every time the coordinates are needed.
- The Google Maps API has a limit on requests coming from a registered API key. This limit is set per day, meaning that you could reach this limit quickly.
Inspecting and Removing the Stored Cached Data
You can access the list of all cached Google Maps data by clicking the Load stored data button in the Maps tab of the Toolset Settings page.
The following image shows the Cached data section with the already stored data displayed.
Each row can be deleted individually. Since Google Maps API has a limit on requests that a registered API key can perform, the Toolset Maps plugin stores this data as soon as possible. In the case of the Types Address fields, the data is stored when the field is saved.
