This template will deploy HERE’s enterprise-grade SLA-backed maps and location services as serverless functions along with an event bus, and a cosmos DB, that are used in real-time data streaming and processing for data-intensive applications. HERE Maps & Location Services 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.
The maps and location services addresses use cases like Fleet Utilization, Supply Chain Optimization, Urban Movement, etc. These services open new location intelligence opportunities in diverse industries like Automotive, Insurance, Internet and Media, Mobile Payments, Public Sector and Infrastructure, Telecom and Utilities, and Transportation and Logistics.
The function app in this ARM Template consists of the following HERE Location Service APIs:
Geocoding and Search:
Navigation and Routing:
Geocoder: Forward and Reverse
- Batch Geocoder
- Geocoder Autocomplete
Routing - Mode (car, truck, public transit, bicycle) and algorithm (matrix, isoline routing)
Considering toll costs along a route
- Working with geofences
- Working with custom locations
- Building custom routes
- Integrating advanced HERE data sets
- Route matching GPS traces
- Calculating an optimal sequence of waypoints
To deploy the HERE Maps and Location Services for Data Streams:
Positioning - Provides positioning estimates including the latitude and longitude based on global Wi-Fi and Cell coverage.
