The Places data quality service takes a company name and coordinates to search for nearby places that match the search constraint. The service will build a priority boundary around the coordinates based on the configured diameter.

Required Input Attributes for Places

The input dataset for this service must include attributes for company name, latitude, and longitude.

Output Attributes for Places

The following attributes are provided by this service.

Output Attribute Name Description
enriched_places_business_name Name of the business for the place.
enriched_places_formatted_address A string containing the human-readable address of this place.

Often, this address is equivalent to the postal address. Note that some countries, such as the United Kingdom, do not allow distribution of true postal addresses due to licensing restrictions.

The formatted address is logically composed of one or more address components. For example, the address "111 8th Avenue, New York, NY" consists of the following components: "111" (the street number), "8th Avenue" (the route), "New York" (the city) and "NY" (the US state).

enriched_places_longitude The geocode longitude for the place.

For all other results, the vicinity attribute contains the name of the narrowest political (types:["political", ...]) feature that is present in the address of the result.
