The Google Places API allows you to query for place information on a variety of categories, such as: establishments, prominent points of interest, geographic locations, and more. You can search for places either by proximity or a text string. A Place Search returns a list of places along with summary information about each place; additional information is available via a Place Details query. In our case, we have done queries by establishments, so we will use the following place as an example in the rest of the article: Power Properties building, located at 5400 Live Oak Street, Dallas, TX, United States.
