The Google Places API generally has the best accuracy and one of the most comprehensive datasets of POI in the market. It is high quality and they have a fantastic team that keeps the data up-to-date.
However, one of the biggest dis-advantages with Google Places API is the licensing terms. It’s extremely hard to legally use their data unless you are just displaying it directly to users on a Google Map. For example, Apple or Uber finds it tough to license Google data in a way that works well for them.
The other worry with Google Places is that they might change their (already restrictive) terms or increase their already expensive pricing.
But we have a solution, your own data, your own management and on your own terms! Your POI!
