November 2021 Release Announcement

By Torsten Linz | 18 November 2021

Highlights

Marketplace now supports a broader set of Provider APIs for listings

Marketplace API Proxy now supports Provider APIs that use Basic Authentication or OAuth 2.0 Authentication; it also supports APIs that use two authentication parameters. Additionally, the HERE Marketplace API Proxy now supports supplementary HTTP methods - POST, PUT, and DELETE.  

Vector Tile API now serves a simplified road network layer for better display when zoomed out

To improve the clarity of the road network display when zoomed out, the Vector Tile API now serves complex junctions and multiply digitized roads with a stronger simplification on zoom level 1 to 13. As this reduces the size of the data, this also leads to a faster download and rendering performance. Zoom levels 14 and lower certainly continue to provide a high detail level. The following images show examples of how data is served at low vs. high zoom levels.
