Before you start working with the Data SDK, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the core HERE Workspace concepts as well as with the following tools and REST APIs. Also, have a look what the SDKs for other programming languages may do for you, if Java or Scala is not a preferred language for you.
- the HERE portal - where you can manage access rights, data, pipelines, browse documentation and request support, if needed.
- Pipeline API - providing endpoints for managing pipelines.
- Data API - providing endpoints for managing data.
OLP CLI allows you to access Workspace services from a command line or with scripts. For example, you can use the OLP CLI to:
- Create catalogs and layers
- Create and run pipelines
You can download the OLP CLI on the SDK and tools page.
Maven Archetypes available for some project categories to allow you to conveniently create your project scaffolding and to create, publish, and update schemas in the HERE Workspace.
Data Inspector accessible through the portal and also available in the form of the Data Inspector Library for visual representation of the Workspace data structure. We recommend using the Data Inspector when you begin working with a new data set or debugging pipeline applications as it immediately shows the visual representation of your data.
- The Data Inspector displays the coverage of your data on the world map showing the largest tiles and allows you to view decoded tiled data as text.
- Some schema types support data visualization on a map out of the box, such as the HERE Map Content Topology Geometry Schema. You can find such data visualization on the Road Topology & Geometry layer. GeoJSON data can also be visualized on a map, as you can see in HERE GeoJSON Samples.
- For other data, you can use the Data Inspector to create your own rendering plugins that transform your Protobuf data to GeoJSON.
Your simplest experience is to use the Data Inspector on the Portal. Just select the data you are interested in, select a layer and go to the Inspect tab. However, you may also create your own Data Inspector and customize it for your needs using the Data Inspector Library.
We recommend that you start with the Developer tutorials and examples that provide an overview of the basic Workspace functionality.
For examples of using the Workspace data, see Example Use Cases.
