At present, search, public transport, driving routes, pedestrian routes, and traffic data queries are free. Baidu plans to add more functionality to the API later this year.
The Baidu Maps API is already in use in the company’s Baidu Maps, Baidu Post Bar, Baidu Space, Baidu Knows, and other product lines. Baidu currently has more than a dozen partners for the Baidu Maps service.
