Basic HERE platform data management and data processing billing concepts

Understanding and Managing Costs stores data in catalogs, which are a collection of data that is managed as a single set. Catalogs contain layers representing different types of data. In the case of map data, layers can be overlaid spatially to construct a complete digital map. For example, a catalog may contain a map that includes layers for road attributes, topology, and signs. While catalogs often contain geospatial data, catalogs can contain any type of data.

A layer is a set of partitions of a specific data type, functional property, and structure. Each layer relates to a set of billable cloud services which accrue costs when used. See Layers for more information.

Pipelines also relate to a set of billable cloud services which accrue usage costs based on the amount of data used and measured in Gigabytes (GB). A pipeline is an executable data processing application designed to run on a streaming or batched processing framework. This application is commonly referred to as a pipeline, because it channels the data input through a defined sequence of manipulations and transformations which have a single end point. Many components go into making a pipeline. See the Pipelines Developer's Guide for more information on pipeline concepts.

The following figure provides a high-level mapping overview of Understanding and Managing Costs components and shows how they connect to their respective billable cloud services.

See Billable cloud services for more information on billing rates and service costs for cloud services.
