Introduction

HERE Geocoding and Search provides the search and geocoding capabilities of HERE to create location-enabled applications that allow users to search for HERE Points of Interest (POIs), forward and reverse geocode address and geo-positions from the HERE map, access Bring Your Own Data (BYOD), and benefit from faster data updates.

Note

BYOD capabilities are only available to customers with a HERE Workspace license.

HERE Geocoding and Search supports the following use cases:

  • Retrieve addresses and global POIs with more than 400 categories and address objects at different levels (house number, street, city, state, postal code, and so on.)
  • Enable the entry of unstructured character strings as queries for addresses or places with the Discover and Geocode endpoints.
  • Supports structured, unstructured, and hybrid (combinations of structured and unstructured query elements) queries with the Geocode endpoint.
  • Provide automated suggestions during text entry. Places, addresses, chain queries, and category queries may be returned as suggestions.
  • Request a reverse geocode to find the nearest address using either map coordinates or a selected spot on a map.
  • Search for and lookup location details by ID.
  • Conduct searches using filters that include parameters such as category (food, airport, park, and so on), with results returned by distance from the context center.
