  • Place Place mode displays a map pin at a particular place or address, such as a landmark, business, geographic feature, or town.

  • Directions Directions mode displays the path between two or more specified points on the map, as well as the distance and travel time.

  • Search Search mode displays results for a search across the visible map region. It’s recommended that a location for the search be defined, either by including a location in the search term (record stores in Seattle) or by including a center and zoom parameter to bound the search.

  • View View mode returns a map with no markers or directions baed on the search term.
