Place Details

This sample demonstrates how to use the Places service's getDetails() method to retrieve Place Details for a particular place, and add a marker to the map which displays the details when clicked.

Read the documentation.

JavaScript

// This example requires the Places library. Include the libraries=places
// parameter when you first load the API. For example:
// <script src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=YOUR_API_KEY&libraries=places">

function initMap() {
  var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {
    center: { lat: -33.866, lng: 151.196 },
    zoom: 15
  });

  var request = {
    placeId: "ChIJN1t_tDeuEmsRUsoyG83frY4",
    fields: ["name", "formatted_address", "place_id", "geometry"]
  };

  var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();
  var service = new google.maps.places.PlacesService(map);

  service.getDetails(request, function(place, status) {
    if (status === google.maps.places.PlacesServiceStatus.OK) {
      var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
        map: map,
        position: place.geometry.location
      });
      google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function() {
        infowindow.setContent(
          "<div><strong>" +
            place.name +
            "</strong><br>" +
            "Place ID: " +
            place.place_id +
            "<br>" +
            place.formatted_address +
            "</div>"
        );
        infowindow.open(map, this);
      });
    }
  });
}

CSS

/* Always set the map height explicitly to define the size of the div
       * element that contains the map. */
#map {
  height: 100%;
}

/* Optional: Makes the sample page fill the window. */
html,
body {
  height: 100%;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
}
