Use multiple substrings with Place Finder Web Service

Last Published: April 25, 2020


Multiple strings can be connected with commas.


Strings separated by commas after the first string are used to help narrow the search in other fields of the database. Each additional substring further restricts the search. If one of the substrings is not listed with the main search term in the database, the request does not return a match. Below are three scenarios for a Place Finder search:

  • Simple search for a city name:

  • Search for a city and state:

    Boise, Idaho
  • Search for a city, state, and country:

    Boise, Idaho, US
