What Is the Map Tile API?
The HERE Map Tile API is a REST API that allows you to request map tile images for all regions in the world. These map tiles, when combined in a grid, form a complete map of the world using the Mercator Projection.
The map tiles show different types of map information such as basemap, aerial map, panorama map, and traffic information. In addition, you can also obtain metadata information about specific tiles, filter POI tiles based on their categories, and show different map views depending on the geopolitical views for that location.
