Add data to your map

The Data tab lists all the interactive map layers you can access in the HERE platform and use directly in your maps. You can narrow down the list by searching for a specific data layer.

You can also manage your data, edit entries, delete complete datasets, and download a file of the data stored in the cloud.

Upload your own data layers

  1. Click the + Data button.
  2. Upload and/or select your dataset(s) from the list.
  3. Click Add dataset to upload your data.

One of the benefits of having your datasets in the cloud is to use them in more than one map. You can pick from the list of available interactive map layers and add them to your map.

The interactive map layers are shared between all of your maps and changes to the data are reflected in each map immediately.

Add an empty layer

You can add an empty layer if you do not have any data file. In the empty layer, you can create and edit features. In the empty layer, you can create and edit features.

Note

Every interactive map layer you add with HERE Studio has the following description: This layer is created by and required by HERE Studio at https://platform.here.com/studio. In the HERE platform, every data layer is stored in a catalog. The catalogs that HERE Studio creates have the following description: This catalog is created by HERE Studio and contains a layer that is required by HERE Studio at https://platform.here.com/studio.

Feature and table view

The table shows data from one interactive map layer or dataset. You might have to select the layer you want to see before you switch to the table view.

Upload your own datasets

You can upload your own datasets from your computer into the cloud for use in HERE Studio and add them to your map.

  1. Click the + Data button.
  2. Click Upload and select one or multiple files from the your datasets.
  3. Click Add dataset to upload your data.
  4. Your map displays your new dataset.

Tip

You can also drag and drop files directly onto the map. They will be uploaded and added to the map automatically.

GeoJSON is a common format for geospatial data which works nicely in HERE Studio. If you find something you want to use, you can upload the data into the cloud for use in HERE Studio .

See our example for uploading datasets, which shows you how to upload a GeoJSON dataset from an open website to your HERE Studio map.

Pick datasets for your map

One of the benefits of having your dataset in the cloud is to use them in more than one map. You can pick from the list of available datasets and add them to your map.

The datasets are shared between all of your maps and changes to the data are reflected in each map immediately.

Note

Data and style are handled separately. All data is stored in the cloud but each map can define different styles even for the same data. You can also safely rename layers individually without breaking the link to the dataset.
