SDK for Android Developer's Guide


This section provides an overview of the Places feature in HERE SDK. The Places feature enables developers to build rich, location-aware applications by adding point of interest search, discovery, interaction, and information retrieval.

For example, when an application submits a place discovery request using this API, the application receives a response that contains a list of links to places resources (among other information). By accessing one of the linked Place resources the application can get detailed information about that place including ratings, images, reviews, editorials, and owner content. This detailed place response also contains references to other related places allowing the application users to discover other places relevant or related to their original search.

Note: To use this feature, your application must include the Gson library (release 2.2.4 or a compatible version) on its class path.
