HERE Map Content Developer's Guide

Administrative Places Layer

The Administrative Places layer contains the hierarchy (for example Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, United States) and attributes for each administrative area in the HERE Map.

  • Administrative Areas names in various languages and transliterations
  • Postal code information
  • Administrative metadata information like the local currency and language, applicable time zones and daylight-saving time and more.
  • Disputed Area coding is included in the Administrative Places as an alternate administrative structure.
  • The Administrative Places structure is constructed based on admin, zone and postal information in the HERE map.

The Administrative Places layer is linked to the Administrative Locations layers by the Administrative Context.

A complete overview and comprehensive description of attributes is provided in the HERE Map Content catalog data specification.
