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. We contribute to the Pelias project to improve it and offer you the best user experience.
