The Places Linking Object provides a method for linking one Places Object to another Places Object. For example, you may have a country area region, defined as a Location Object, with many business sites or offices in it. Using Places Linking, you can assign all of the Site Objects [places.site] to the single Location Object [places.location]. In your application, you can then run a filter against the Collection to get all of the offices within a specified region.

Collection: placeLinks
Object Identifier: places.link
