Place Category Systems

Places API supports two place ontologies:

  • place content ontology: PDS place categories and food-types
  • place search ontology: less granular Find Place categories


Places API allows customers to choose through the cs parameter the category system used for both

GS7 responses only supports the more granular pds category system: All place results are returned with HERE place categories and/or cuisines.

Places API applications needing the less granular place categories (place search ontology) need to be adapted to this more granular system.
