From the Pinterest Help Center:

“Place Pins have a specific location connected to them. Now, you can add a place name to your Pin and get the address and other details. Place boards highlight all your Pins on a map.

Note: the locations for Place Pins are provided by Foursquare, but there isn’t a “check-in” feature on Pinterest.”
