HERE Maps & Location Services for WebApp backends

HERE Technologies

Deploy HERE's enterprise-class SLA-backed maps & location services for web application backends.

This template will deploy HERE's enterprise-grade SLA-backed maps and location services as serverless functions along with a service bus, and a cosmos DB, that are used as data processing backends for web 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:
  • Geocoder: Forward and Reverse
  • Batch Geocoder
  • Geocoder Autocomplete
  • Places
Maps:
  • Map Image
  • Map Tile
Navigation and Routing:
  • Routing - Mode (car, truck, public transit, bicycle) and algorithm (matrix, isoline routing)
Fleet Telematics:
  • 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
More APIs:
  • Positioning - Provides positioning estimates including the latitude and longitude based on global Wi-Fi and Cell coverage.
