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.

TypeScript

// This example requires the Places library. Include the libraries=places
// parameter when you first load the API. For example:

    document.getElementById("map") as HTMLElement,

    }

  const request = {
    placeId: "ChIJN1t_tDeuEmsRUsoyG83frY4",
