The HERE Route Match v8 REST API offers a rich functionality for matching GPS traces onto roads, lookup map attributes on the driven path and retrieve a wealth of information for risk assessment, driving analytics and reports.

Figure 1. Overview


  • Match GPS driving traces onto the most probably driven route on the HERE map.

  • High precision matching. Not only for statistical analysis, but also individual drive rating. Patented best in class technology.

  • Only coordinates needed, but benefits from time, heading and speed
  • Dense and sparse traces, highly accurate and poor quality traces, up to 1000s of kilometers
  • Filters outliers and noise, handles point clouds on standing vehicles, tunnels, ferries; straightens bad quality sections, in doubt prefers legal paths
  • Returns consecutive fully drivable routes, even for big gaps in traces (important for statistics like urban/motorway miles), returns match quality per point and road section.
  • High batch capacities, fast response time - for post trip analysis and for near-real time monitoring (route departure, theft, delays, driver warning)
  • Filters, cleans and corrects input data - returns corrected values and suppressed unlikely/noisy values (coordinates, time, heading, speed, acceleration)
  • Computes/estimates and returns additional data like speed, heading and acceleration
  • Reports illegal driving maneuvers: One way, no access for vehicle type, illegal turn, illegal u-turn, weight/height/width/length/hazmat/trailer/axle/... restrictions violated, gate traversal, no through traffic, delivery only, recreational vehicle restrictions, cellular coverage gaps ...
  • Reports real time traffic situation & local weather conditions at the time of driving
  • Reports stops/rests taken
  • Reports violations of legal rest time for commercial drivers (hours of service)
  • Reports speeding, cornering, stop sign violation and other risk/charge relevant driving patterns
  • Reports daylight status & sun exposure (vertical + horizontal angle) for risk rating
  • Reports energy/fuel consumption, road type usage and road toll cost for post trip cost/tyx reporting
  • Any map attributes can be included in response (speed limit, curve radius, slope, height, traffic signs, black spots, urban, controlled access, ramp, number of lanes, physical dividers, road roughness, traffic pattern …)

  • In addition to post trip analytics, also suitable for near real time driver alerting/feedback and tracking/geofencing use cases.

  • Match into/onto your custom roads like your private yard/site maps (Bring Your Own Data). Add your public/private roads, connect to the HERE map network, block/deprecate/prefer roads, add or suppress turck dimension restrctions or attach your own map attributes.

  • Combine with HERE Fleet Telematcis Geofencing on Maps (streets, railroads, rivers, airports, bus stations…) for smartphone based driver rating (to auto-activate tracking whenever driver is driving in his car)

  • ETA Tracking - More accurate Arrival Time Estimate by Tracking with Legal Rest Detection/Integration/Learning

    • auto-detect reached & skipped waypoints so far -> routing considers the remaining

    • auto-detect rest times done so far, and when -> routing schedules the next stops accordingly

    • learn and apply typical rest patterns


The per transaction or per asset based pricing differs slightly depending on which of the above premium features are used. Contact your account executive for your use case and volumes. Evauation and limited volumes are free of charge.

Self Hosting (On Premise)
