 * Moves the map to display over Boston using viewBounds
 * @param  {H.Map} map      A HERE Map instance within the application
function setMapViewBounds(map){
  var bbox = new H.geo.Rect(42.3736,-71.0751,42.3472,-71.0408);
   * Boilerplate map initialization code starts below:
  //Step 1: initialize communication with the platform
  // In your own code, replace variable app_id with your own app_id
  // and app_code with your own app_code
  var platform = new H.service.Platform({
    app_id: app_id,
    app_code: app_code,
    useCIT: true,
    useHTTPS: true
  var defaultLayers = platform.createDefaultLayers();
  //Step 2: initialize a map - this map is centered over Europe
  var map = new H.Map(document.getElementById('map'),
    center: {lat:50, lng:5},
    zoom: 4
  // add a resize listener to make sure that the map occupies the whole container
  window.addEventListener('resize', () => map.getViewPort().resize());
  //Step 3: make the map interactive
  // MapEvents enables the event system
  // Behavior implements default interactions for pan/zoom (also on mobile touch environments)
  var behavior = new H.mapevents.Behavior(new H.mapevents.MapEvents(map));
  // Create the default UI components
  var ui = H.ui.UI.createDefault(map, defaultLayers);
  // Now use the map as required...
