The purpose of the Places API is to search for geographical features (toponyms) and businesses. The service allows you to search for houses, streets, landmarks, cafes, and other places.
The search can be performed in two directions. Forward search means using a search query to get the coordinates of places, and reverse search means using coordinates to find places.
