Places API

The Places API lets you bring location context into your applications with the speed and reliability you need to scale by providing rich, accurate, point of interest (POI) data that you can trust to meet your needs at any scale.

Provide search results that have meaning. Using Places, your users can draw from our rich details about each venue and location to find the best places near them.

You can also power geo-tagging based on real-time location and passively predict a future location with our place-probability algorithm.
