Places (Search) API Developer's Guide

What is the Places (Search) API?

HERE Places (Search) API is a web service that allows users to search and explore places in the same way as, for example, in HERE Maps, but allowing you to retain your application-specific look and feel.

HERE Places (Search) API is designed to build interactive applications which integrate online search functionalities for Places of Interest (POI's); offers the best way to integrate address and POI-related search & discovery

The Places (Search) API has a number of endpoints that center around two major features:

  • Place discovery – search for places near your users
  • Place description - get detailed information about the places your users are interested in
