Maps API for JavaScript Developer's Guide


The Maps API for JavaScript has been designed to meet the challenges of modern Web application development. The articles that follow describe various aspects of the API, including a number of state-of-the-art development patterns it supports.

The text is illustrated with examples of real code and with images to show the effects of executing the code.


The code examples use the placeholder text {YOUR_APP_CODE} and {YOUR_APP_ID} to indicate places where you should substitute your own unique app_id and app_code values. For more information about these authentication credentials, see Acquiring Credentials.


To communicate with the HERE back-end services (REST APIs), the examples are configured to use the Customer Integration Testing (CIT) environment.
