HERE Map Content Schema


This document contains the data and content specifications for HERE Map Content. The intended audience of this document consists primarily of developers working for and with HERE customers.

This document is divided into several parts:

  • The first sections describe the structure of the HERE Map Content catalog, including information on using the catalog, the Logical Data Models, common messages, and messages specific to Layers. General information about catalogs can be found in the Data API.
  • The later sections contain the definition and usage information for attributes specific to each Layer, as well as for the common attributes. Coding rules are not available under a Base Plan license.
    Note: The specification is written for various HERE Map products, so generic attribute names as well as values may be used. A slight difference in the attribute names vs. field names may occur.

For the terms and conditions covering this documentation, see the Documentation License.

Data privacy is of fundamental importance to HERE and our customers. We practice data minimization and don’t collect data we don’t need. And we promote pseudonymity for data subjects wherever a service does not require personal information to function. We employ privacy by design in services we develop. We strive to go beyond mere regulatory compliance and make privacy an integral part of our corporate culture. We believe that our approach to privacy is vital to earning and retaining the trust of our customers – and the bedrock of our future success as a data-driven location platform.
