Platform Data Extension API

The HERE Platform Data Extension is an API that provides HERE content which is not accessible through other HERE Platform APIs. PDE groups HERE core map data into thematic layers. Each layer contains geographical tiles. Each tile contains a list of data records. Each data record contains attributes. Content is delivered per tile as JSON or plain text file.

Each thematic data layer serves a specific use case, e.g. driver warnings, Junction View guidance, fuel efficient driving behavior, safety related driving behavior or polygons of a certain admin level. Each layer contains only the data required for its use case.

This example set works with version 1.4.0 or higher
