This is a PERL SDK for Google Places. This SDK allows developers to access the Google Places API through PERL for integration with other applications and devices. The Google Places Web Service is a service that returns information about a "place": an establishment, a geographic location, or prominent point of interest using an HTTP request.
If you've done much searching for locations using web tools--and who hasn't by now--you've likely discovered some errors along the way. Sometimes a map marker is down the street from the actual location. Geocoding, the process of converting an address to latitude/longitude coordinates, can be an inexact science. A new geocoding service from MapQuest (our MapQuest API profile) aims to help you improve where you place that marker with Address Point Data.
