Knowledge Base - Google Places

What is it

google-places-logoYou can now use Google's own database to enrich your maps with detailed information about places and locations across a wide range of categories, all over the world.

Using Geocode Factory and the Google places gateway plugin you can display airports, trains, business, banks, ATM's, museums, etc, as markers on a map alongside your other markers (from Joomla articles or other gateways like CB, SobiPro, Mosets, K2, etc).

This is the same database used by Google Maps and it "features over 95 million businesses and points of interest that are updated frequently through owner-verified listings and user-moderated contributions" (Google Places API).
