HD Live Map Viewer v3 Technology Preview

HERE are developing a new viewer, currently known as HD Live Map Viewer v3, for visualization of multiple map products. Though v3 is in a relatively early state of maturity, we would like to share this with customers as a technology preview, to enable you to visualize new products and map attributes not available in the HD Live Map v2 viewer, and solicit feedback on features and design.

Products that are currently supported by v3 of the HD Live Map Viewer:

  • HD Live Map in NDS and Native formats.
  • HERE Lanes in Native format.
  • HD Live Map Advanced Speed Limits in Native format.

Access: As with HDLMV v2, customers require a HERE OLP user account and read access to data catalogs through account entitlements to use HDLMV v3. There is a single production URL for v3. All available catalogs for all compatible products will be accessible from here: https://hdlmv3.ext.here.com/hdlmv-app/
