  • 'city' is now 'locality'
  • 'classifiers' is now 'categories', and we've Places 1.2 uses the Factual heirchical category schema as defined here: http://wiki.developer.factual.com/w/page/33153715/Factual%20Local%20Taxonomy (URL encoded version available)
  • 'closed' is a new field that indicates if a business or place is no longer open
  • 'province' is now 'region'
  • The ID format has changed to reflect Factual's ID
