Routing API v7 Developer's Guide

Request a Simple Route

To calculate directions for private transport between two locations, using the calculateroute service, include in the request the following:

  • your authentication credentials, apiKey or app_id and app_code if you are using the app_id/app_code authentication (see the Identity & Access Management Developer Guide)
  • the start (waypoint0) and destination (waypoint1) waypoints,
  • and the mode, which describes the type of route calculation and whether to take traffic into account.

This example requests the fastest route for a car without taking traffic conditions into account. Note that the waypoints are specified in latitude and longitude by using the geo! string value.
Note: This example uses a HERE API Key to authenticate your request. For the available authentication options, see the Identity & Access Management Developer Guide.
