HERE Maps API - How to show a Place on a web page

From Nokia Developer Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Contents

Introduction

In this example we will use the places library of the Nokia Maps API to get information about a specific place and render that data on the web page with the use of the default template. There are a set of templates you can use for your purposes.

The information displayed consists of the name of the place next to a POI category icon, the address and contact details on a map centered to the POI icon.

To the results it is possible to add a list of reviews, ratings, accepted payment methods, photos taken.

The HTML page has a div element on which the information will be displayed.

In this simple example, we will only call the Place constructor using two parameters:

  • targetNode - indicates where to display the place data.
  • placeId - the id of the location for which data is to be fetched and displayed.

Implementation

This is a fully working example code in HTML and JavaScript.

Example code
