Custom Location Extension API Developer's Guide

What Is the Custom Location Extension API?

The HERE Custom Location Extension API is a REST API that allows you to store and retrieve custom geometries that contain locations, polyline, or polygons. You can upload geometries in two different formats:
  • CSV files using Wellknown Text (WKT) geometry
  • Shapefile standard-compliant shapes
In turn, you can retrieve these locations by making HTTP REST requests, filtering both spatially and by attributes.

In addition to the REST service, the Custom Location Extension API also provides an administration website for users to manage their custom geometries. See the Custom Location Extension API User Guide for more information.
