Find the details of a place
/place endpoint provides the detailed information available in Google Places database and Google Maps for a given place. The Place IDs uniquely identify a place and are available for most locations, including businesses, landmarks, parks, roads and intersections. Please note that the same place or location can have different place IDs and they may also change over time.
placeIDrefers to a string of letters that is a unique id for a place in the Google system, obtained from the Autocomplete API.
sessionIdis the user generated UUID of a session also called session token. It consists of multiple autocomplete requests and ends with a place fetch request. In other words the session tokens bundle queries made to the Autocomplete APIs and Place APIs into a single session.
A session begins when you begin typing a query to the Autocomplete API and ends when you select an address from the list of suggestions, which sends a fetch to the Place API. After selecting a place based on the autocompleted suggestions, the token is no longer valid. Sessions also end after a short period of time if no location is selected.
Refer to the Generating a Session Id section for more information about sessionID.
