Places API reference

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

Jawg Places is based on Pelias which is a modern, geographic search service based entirely on open-source tools and powered entirely by open data. Through a process known as geocoding, Jawg Places and Pelias allows you to use natural language to find a particular place by entering an address or the name of a landmark or business, and then translates the result in to the geographic coordinates used by computers.
