Places API – search points of interest by criteria
Search places by bounding box, within a radius or by another location filter. Choose categories and add conditions to make Places API return value for your business case results. We already support more than 350 categories and regularly extent the API by new ones.
We have a Freemium pricing model for the Geoapify APIs platform. Start using The Places API now for free and extend when you need it. Try the API in the Playground now without registration!
The Place Details API provides extended information about the place – it’s geometry, contact information, open hours, and more. Together with common information about the place, it’s possible to query related features and analytical data. For example, all commercials reachable within 5 minutes, schools and kindergartens nearby, the closest public transport stops.
Coming soon! Contact us for more information.
Categories and conditions
We constantly increase the number of categories and conditions. The list already includes all common amenity types. However, some cases might be not covered.
Contact us and describe your business case. We will be happy to extend the API to cover it!
We do not rate separate requests but have limits per each pricing plan. Please note, Geocoding and Places APIs requests belong to the same limit group. So, if your project uses both APIs, so the sum of both API requests shouldn’t be greater than your current pricing plan limit.
You can set limit=500 to get the maximum amount of elements in one response. Otherwise, you can access the next pages by using the offset parameter. Please note, when the limit is bigger than 20, every 20 items in the response are counted as one Places API request.
Depending on pricing plan we offer up to 35 requests / sec for Places API requests.
Yes, sure. Set location bias and set the maximal amount of results as a limit. In addition, you can set the location filter as a view box or circle.
You can set as a filter any geometry generated by the Geoapify Location Platform. For example, this could be isoline or result of geometry operation on isoline. You can try filter by geometry in our Playground.
We recommend all our customers to switch version 2, as it’s more powerful and supports more types of places. However, we do not plan at the moment to shut down the first version as there are still customers that using it.
