For the past two days when I enter my state to check the scout arrival the following pops up:
“Geocode was not successful for the following reason: REQUEST_DENIED”
Is anyone else experiencing this? And what would cause it?
Thanks for any help. This has never happened before and it has me baffled (hmmm in martin terminology that sounds familiar :roll:).

Martin Colony History: 2018 1 lone nut and lots of visitors
2019 6 pair -21fledged
2020 18 pair -60 fledged
2021......to be seen.
24 natural gourds on a satellite rack,9 other gourds scattered around
2-12 compartment trio houses
Rarely see a sparrow or starling,but when I do they don’t last long!
Will have a second satellite rack for the 2022 season and phase out the houses,the martins here strongly prefer natural gourds.

Sharon and Robert,I’m in Louisiana and it is doing the same thing to me..mine also said request denied,but it did say the geo locator was unable to.............

I think the program uses Google Maps and the link from this website to Google maps is broken.

We're aware of the problem with the maps and we're working on resolving it with our web developer. Unfortunately, Google has changed the process for encoding maps right when we need it the most!

Submitted scout reports are still being received on our end despite any error messages.

It should be squared away quickly. Thanks for your patience.

Martin Colony History: 2018 will be my first try. 6 S&K B09s. 29 eggs - 8 fledged
2019 - 12 Troyer Horizontals with tunnels, 6 S&K B09s and 12 B011s all with tunnels. 43 eggs - 36 fledged
2020 - Rack 1 - 6 B011s, Rack 2 - 24 B011s, and Rack 3 - 24 Troyer Horizontals. All gourds have tunnels, porches and crescent/Conley 11 entrances; racks have predator guards. 161 eggs - 88 fledged

Yes, same thing here in Palm City, FL. I "get around it" like i suppose the rest of you are doing; but it is a PITA.

BioJoe,
Thanks for the update. Google maps can be frustrating at times and I know y’all are doing the best you can to keep this website working at its best. We appreciate your hard work.
