Name

Description

id

Integer

Referred to as business_id elsewhere throughout the API.

establishment_id

Integer

The ID for the associated chain.

Note: Chain, Brand, and Establishment are all synonyms.

If this is a POI belonging to McDonalds, then the establishment_id would be 153, which is the case for every McDonalds POI.

For POIs that are independently owned or not part of a larger chain, we have "Independent" Establishments. For an non-chain hotel, it would belong to the "Independent Lodging" Establishment.

brand_name

String

In the above example, "McDonalds" and "Independent Lodging" would be the brand_name

name

String

Some POIs have specific names that differ from the brand_name. This is common for non-chain/independent POIs.

For example, a hotel that belongs to the "Independent Lodging" Establishment might be named "American Classic Inn".

The phone number in the format 1-XXX-XXX-XXXX.

The POI coordinate's latitude.

The POI coordinate's longitude.
