    You would then need a logic which with you would save the data in location from which other instances of your application could fetch the data from. Thus either have your own webserver doing that, or search for any service which you could utilize for the purpose.

    I though that its your own places data that you want to show. anyway , you could also check the REST service API for HERE Places, its not WP specifiec API, but you could use it for fetching places via HTTP requests, thgen if you want to share the place with other instances, you could use the place ID as an reference.

    You would not use it for determining location, you would use it fro fetching data, and then any HTTP example would be good starting point.
