The Places extensions are the client-side technology, which is used to provide location awareness from your Places database to your mobile apps.
Each extension provides the following functionality:
Returns the point of interest (POI) membership and nearest POIs to the device so they can be used for region monitoring.
Makes entry and exit events actionable from Launch rules.
Automatically adds POI context to other Experience Cloud events that are already being tracked. Adobe Analytics integration available on (3/20).
This extension manages device location by OS-specified region monitoring from the nearest POIs in your Places database and passing entry/exit events to the Places extension. This extension is optional and offers an alternative way to manage locations.
