Location & Places

The location APIs make it easy for you to build location-aware applications, without needing to focus on the details of the underlying location technology. The related Places APIs also help your app identify real-world points of interest near the user.

To get started, first set up the Google Play services SDK. To learn how to identify the user's location, see Making Your App Location Aware, or to identify nearby places, see the Google Places API for Android developer guide.
