Map API key distribution safety

 I have an app I am about to release that uses MapViews (they're sort
of integral to the app).  I plan on releasing it as an open source
application.  That said, my question is, is it safe to distribute my
map API key with the source?  As in, would it require a signed .apk
from my key and my key alone in order to function, or would it be
possible for someone to abuse my map key without my signing key?
