Integrate powerful location features with a flexible and lightweight REST architecture

Enrich your apps with powerful location features

RESTful web services that serve different purposes – from search, to geocoding, to routing.

Whether you’re providing truck routing for fleets or navigating users through the city with different transport modes, HERE REST APIs provide you with everything you need to put location at the heart of your app: maps, weather information, batch geocoding, comprehensive routing and more.

Additional advanced location features include geofencing (entry and exit notifications), custom and private roads, speed limits, traffic lights and road curvature.

Features and capabilities
Feature Description

Integrate server-rendered raster 2D map tiles in multiple styles, such as base, aerial and fleet. Use different zoom levels, display options, map views and schemes, including the Truck Attributes Map layer for large vehicles.

Get access to pre-rendered map images that are optimized for desktop and mobile devices. Add route polygons, POI labels and other objects on top of the map to give your users the insights they need.

Develop sophisticated visualizations of geographically related data through heat maps, choropleth maps and more.

Convert and accurately match addresses to geocoordinates and vice versa with over 360 million hyper-precise point addresses in 108 countries. Upload up to 100 pairs of coordinates and process them in a single synchronous request.

Correct misspellings and provide better suggestions for address searches, all with fewer keystrokes. Apply filters for a specific country or list of countries, as well provide a quicker and more accurate match for a given address.

Improve response time per single coordinate by uploading up to a million forward or reverse geocoder requests, or up to 2GB records per request file.

Get global information on 150 million parks, businesses, attractions and more, including addresses, categories and contact info.

Complete complex journeys more efficiently with advanced routing algorithms including truck routing, large scale matrix routing and traffic-enabled routing. Get accurate ETAs and routing instructions in over 108 languages.

Provide the best public transit routes while highlighting walking directions to stops, pedestrian access points, station locations and transfer locations along the way.

Provide a choice of routes that combine drive, park, ride and walk functions while taking into account several variables: real-time traffic, incidents, public transit timetables and other dynamic information.

Add real-world context to your application by integrating real-time and historical traffic information about accidents, congestion, construction and more.

Integrate advanced algorithms ready to solve complex location problems, such as toll cost calculation, route matching GPS traces and geofencing.

Get current weather reports or weather forecasts and check for severe weather alerts at a specific location.

A REST API that enriches geo-coordinates with location context to enable audience segmentation, campaign attribution, content personalization and analytics.

A REST API for location data management that allows developers to store, edit and retrieve geospatial data more efficiently.

Store and retrieve the location and user-defined telemetry of IoT devices for real-time and historical tracking and geofencing.

Build applications that require location estimates based on radio network measurement data. Supported measurement data includes 2G, 3G, 4G, and WLAN measurements.
