Places enables app developers enrich their customer experience by integrating the location context.

Adobe Places REST API

The Places REST API lets you work programmatically with your organization's point of interest (POI). The POIs are organized into libraries so that you can easily create grouped actions on these POIs. The APIs allow you to create, update, and delete your libraries and the POIs in those libraries. These APIs use JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) standards to format the data that is sent and received. 

Location Data in One Place

Manage a database of POIs with the ability to attach the metadata to each of the POIs. The metadata makes the POIs custom to your organization. These POIs can then be used throughout your Experience Cloud workflows. You can manage your database by using our REST APIs or by using the Places user interface.   

Location-Enriched Profile

Understanding where your users are located fundamentally changes how you understand and engage with them. Adding the Places extensions to the Experience Platform Mobile SDKs allows you to monitor geofence entry and exit events, even if the app is in the background, and also seamlessly attach the location context to the other events that you are tracking.
