Properties

Optional location

location?: null | LatLng | LatLngLiteral

The LatLng of the entity described by this place.

Optional placeId

placeId?: string

The place ID of the place (such as a business or point of interest). The place ID is a unique identifier of a place in the Google Maps database. Note that the placeId is the most accurate way of identifying a place. If possible, you should specify the placeId rather than a query. A place ID can be retrieved from any request to the Places API, such as a TextSearch. Place IDs can also be retrieved from requests to the Geocoding API. For more information, see the overview of place IDs.

Optional query

query?: string

A search query describing the place (such as a business or point of interest). An example query is "Quay, Upper Level, Overseas Passenger Terminal 5 Hickson Road, The Rocks NSW". If possible, you should specify the placeId rather than a query. The API does not guarantee the accuracy of resolving the query string to a place. If both the placeId and query are provided, an error occurs.
