Sharing a Place

The link in the place.view attribute can be used to enable users to share a place with their friends.

The link points to a human-friendly representation of the place. The link is dynamic and may return a different representation depending on the platform on which it is being viewed. For example, if it is viewed from a desktop browser, it links to the place page in HERE Maps.

The example below shows a typical view link on a place which can be used when sharing:

  "name": "Antipodes",
  "location": {
  "placeId": "276u33dc-3944a4748a62499cb795cf8bee349c9c",
  "view": ""
