The Services include: Geocoder, Search, Maps, Navigation, Routing, Fleet Telematics, Positioning and more which solve a range of problems like map visualization, navigation, routing, geocoding, time zone lookups, geofencing, custom locations, routing, route matching GPS traces, geospatial, sequencing multiple waypoints, truck routing, positioning, etc. These services open new location intelligence opportunities in diverse industries like IoT, Automotive, Insurance, Transportation and Logistics.

Geocoding and Search

You will get the most accurate and up-to-date database for point addressing, with over 270 million precise point addresses in 70 countries. Robust geocoder queries recognizing both addresses in 196 countries and Places/Business information. It understands differences in address format across countries and correct formatting issues to pinpoint locations faster. Features include forward geocoding, reverse geocoding, search data, One box search, autosuggest or Bring your own data.

Maps

Interactive Maps can display map tiles and pre-rendered images (e.g., base, satellite, aerial) while customizing the map look and feel. Vector Tile allows you to access the freshest HERE map data and customize the map style to fit your needs. Map Image provides pre-rendered map images already optimized for desktop and mobile devices.

Routing

Provides precise instructions to a destination using various transport modes (e.g., car, truck, public transit, bicycle) and leveraging different algorithms (e.g., matrix, isoline routing). Intermodal Routing provides alternative routes that combine drive, park, ride and walk to a final destination. Large-Scale Matrix Routing calculate the best routes through through one or more locations, showing distances and/or ETAs from up to 10,000 origins and destinations.

Geofencing

Monitor mobile assets entering or leaving a certain geographic area, of any size, anywhere in the world. An asset is any kind of trackable object, such as a person, car, smartphone, or delivery package. You can define the geographic areas as geometries in the form of geographic polygons, polylines, or points that are relevant for these assets. You can also choose to check the assets' position against Map layers, for example country boundaries, postal code boundaries or census boundary layers.

Fleet Telematics

Capabilities include, but not limited to- Find Real Time Truck Parking Availability, Geofencing, Vehicle Types & Measures, Toll Cost & Cost Optimized Routes, Country Truck Restrictions, Weekend Truck Bans, Environmental Zones, Legal Driver Rest Times, Custom Routes, Waypoint sorting, optional Pickup, Opening Times, Matching GPS Traces, Tracking with ETA Update, Electric Vehilce Routing with Charging etc. All features available through seperate calls or combined through one service request.

Traffic

Display map tiles with real-time traffic flow information overlays reflected as colored lines drawn on affected streets and roads and get access to real-time traffic flow and incident data in XML and JSON.

Toll Costs

Calculate the toll costs for any HERE route while taking into account various vehicle profiles, or get the cost-optimized route based on toll and vehicle costs.

Waypoints Sequence

Get the optimum sequence of a given set of waypoints based on time or distance traveled, or by considering the commercial value at each location. Solves what's also known as "the traveling salesman problem."

    "Review of the Here products and developers portal"

    What do you like best?

    Interactive maps and high accuracy routing. Convert street addresses to geo-coordinates and vice-versa with forward geocoding Real time traffic flow information as overlays From voice-guided pedestrian routing, to intermodal routing, to optimized truck routing

    What do you dislike?

    Lack of or under developed 3D maps Lack of VR support for AR/VR instruments Multipoint destination and routing not available

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    Great alternative to Google maps. Need good JS, apple and android developers to create a seamless integration with existing apps

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    We are using its Apple and Androin SDKs for routing and navigation in our app. Here data on places and POIs is stronger and covers more options esp. for retail location. The SDK is light and seldom crashes in the B2C app. Biggest benefit is access to up-to-date info on POI and interactive navigation within our app

    "Standing that hears is HERE"

    What do you like best?

    The best that I like about this package is the interface. It's just amazing that ant other competitors regardless of the quality of services. It catches the attention of the users in the first place itself. The people would automatically want to switch to this technology if advertised well. This product is growing in the market & will speed up very soon is what we all are expecting. The market will have a good option or I must mention the first option to choose from the list marketed.

    What do you dislike?

    I dislike the publicity method. Rarely people know about this technology. In spite of having the relevant features, the product isn't working that well in the market because of the poor advertising. Additionally, the technology needs a push in the market to feed people the way they are used to of it nowadays. Gea location also needs a little push to show different types of options like a duplex.

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    If you were looking for an option, HERE it is.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    It simply solves your standing in the world. One can easily track the place & reach the destination with the help of this technology. The technology is quite amazing & would earn well for the patent holders. This product really needs a good anchor who may take it off in the way it should be. The technology will be at par & will compete in the market along with the other eagles onboard.
