Search and add places to your map directly in Proxi.

February 1, 2024

It's quick and easy to map with Proxi Search. Find and save places on your map, all without leaving Proxi to find places on Google, Yelp, or blog posts. Say goodbye to the hassle of switching tabs - Proxi empowers you to find the right places. Right here. Right now.

What is Search?

With Proxi's Search feature, map creators can easily and quickly search and save places to their maps directly within the Proxi platform. Proxi simplifies the mapping process by enabling creators to quickly add multiple points to their maps based on category searches. Creators have the flexibility to explore broad categories such as grocery stores and coffee shops or narrow down their search to specific, custom categories like Trader Joe's and Starbucks, selectively choosing which points to include on their maps. Let Proxi take care of the heavy lifting while you unleash your creativity in crafting exceptional maps.

Why Use Search?

Let's take a look at some of the advantages Search brings:

One Spot Mapping

No more juggling multiple tabs or browsers! With our powerful search engine integrated directly into the Proxi map editor, you can ditch external research and  enjoy a seamless map-building experience.

Save Time

No more tedious manual address entry or endless internet searches for place information. Proxi Search takes care of the legwork, freeing up your valuable time to focus on optimizing your content instead of building it from scratch.

Layer Multiple Searches

Why settle for viewing a single search result at a time? Combine, view, and share multiple search results to create comprehensive datasets and guides.

Enhanced Accuracy

Our advanced search API provides up-to-date and precise location data. Say goodbye to outdated addresses or closed locations cluttering your map. With Proxi, you can trust that your information is accurate and reliable.

How Does Search Work?

Using Search couldn't be easier. Here's how it works:

1. Type in your place category. This could be as specific as 'Panera Bread' or as broad as 'cafes'.

2. Set your search radius by moving the circle to your desired area on the map. This could be your current location, a place you're planning to visit, or any other area of interest.

3. Let Proxi do the work. We will search for places that fit your criteria within your search radius.

4. Review the list of places generated. Pinpoint and save which places you want to be added to your map.

Pro Tip! Layer on additional place categories by completing a new search to add to your map!

Key Use Cases

Tips for Searching

When conducting your search, focus on the phrase "This business IS a ____" rather than "This business HAS a ____." For example, if you are looking for a motel with an onsite swimming pool, search for 'Motel' instead of 'swimming pool'.

For more accurate results, use smaller search areas. Instead of searching for an entire state or region, try conducting multiple searches around key cities in your desired area. This approach tends to yield better results.
