Places API - CityGrid

Added By mariavs

The CityGrid Places API enables developers to create web and mobile applications that find local businesses, organizations, and points of interest by a variety of search criteria and display content associated with these places. Developers can use search results to position places on a map, perform further refinement or expansion searches, or access full details of a given place. Future versions of the Places API will allow submission of user reviews, photos, and other content.

If you qualify as a CityGrid partner, you can get paid for using the Places API through Places that Pay. Simply use the Places that Pay tracking features to notify CityGrid about impressions and referrals.

The Places API consists of two endpoint categories:

  • Places Search — Returns the set of places that match your search criteria. Only basic place information is provided with each search result.
  • Places Detail — Returns detailed information and associated content for a single place.
