Get started

HERE Data SDK for C++ provides an interface to access the HERE platform. It is a modern (C++11), lightweight, and modular SDK with minimal dependencies targeted towards a wide range of hardware platforms from embedded devices to desktops.

The Data SDK for C++ package contains three independent modules that focus on a specific set of responsibilities:

  • olp-cpp-sdk-authentication – gets OAuth2 bearer tokens used to confirm platform requests.
  • olp-cpp-sdk-dataservice-read – downloads and caches data from the platform.
  • olp-cpp-sdk-dataservice-write – queues and uploads data to the platform layers.

For more information about the modules, see the architectural overview.

HERE is committed to respecting your privacy and to complying with applicable data protection and privacy laws. For more information, see the HERE Privacy Policy.

For more information on HERE data security and durability best practices, see the Data API.

Backward Compatibility

We try to develop and maintain our API in a way that preserves its compatibility with the existing applications. Changes in the Data SDK for C++ are greatly influenced by the Data API development. Data API introduces breaking changes 6 months in advance. Therefore, you may need to migrate to a new version of the Data SDK for C++ every half a year.

For more information on Data API, see its Developer Guide and API Reference.

When new API is introduced in the Data SDK for C++, the old one is not deleted straight away. The standard API deprecation time is 6 months. It gives you time to switch to new code. However, we do not provide ABI backward compatibility.

All of the deprecated methods, functions, and parameters are documented in the Data SDK for C++ API Reference and changelog.


To start using the Data SDK for C++, you need a platform user account.

Working with the Data SDK for C++ requires knowledge of the following subjects:
