This document provides conceptual and tutorial information for using the Data API. The Data API is a REST interface that provides access to data and data management functions. Data consists of maps and location data provided by HERE as well as data provided by HERE platform users. You can bring your own data by creating a catalog then publishing your data to it. You can then share this data with the users you choose.
The Data API consists of the APIs listed in the API Reference.
You may want to use the Data API instead of the Data Client Library if you are programming in a language other than Java or Scala, or if you require more flexibility than the library allows. Using the Data API requires more low-level coding than the Data Client Library.
Get started with the Data API by exploring data, getting a credentials file, getting an authorization token, and then discovering APIs and catalogs.

Data privacy is of fundamental importance to HERE and our customers. We practice data minimization and don’t collect data we don’t need. And we promote pseudonymity for data subjects wherever a service does not require personal information to function. We employ privacy by design in services we develop. We strive to go beyond mere regulatory compliance and make privacy an integral part of our corporate culture. We believe that our approach to privacy is vital to earning and retaining the trust of our customers – and the bedrock of our future success as a data-driven location platform.
