HERE Tracking is a fast and flexible IoT location platform that makes it quick and easy to add location awareness to your products.
HERE Tracking exposes a set of REST APIs and client libraries to enable location tracking and geofencing for a variety of device form-factors including small-footprint (small memory and processing power) devices. HERE Tracking also includes end-user applications on mobile and web to be used as reference apps to demonstrate the product capabilities.

HERE Tracking provides resources to address the following high-level use cases:
|Connect Devices||Provides the APIs to connect all your tracker devices and to rapidly deploy your IoT solution.|
|Real-time Location and Data||Track your devices indoor and outdoor, see traces on a map, create geofences and get custom notifications.|
|Historical data||Retrieve historical tracking data for analysis with data visualization tools such as charts, graphs, and heatmaps.|
HERE Tracking builds upon a set of objects and backend capabilities that facilitate working with IoT devices in an open and flexible manner. Here's a summary of the main features:
Add devices to the cloud and configure in detail how they report their geolocation and environmental data.
Use WLAN, Cell and Bluetooth LE to determine position on devices without GPS or in areas where GPS is unavailable.
Manage the configuration for your devices and access their reported geolocation and environmental data.
Access current and historical data that a device collected.
Create geofences that generate events and trigger notifications when a device enters or exits a geofence.
Create sensor rules that generate events and trigger notifications when a reported sensor value crosses the threshold of a rule.
Create rules that generate events and trigger notifications when the device breaks the rule.
Manage associations between devices and rules, geofences and sensor rules.
View event history.
Receive notifications via email or webhook when an interesting event gets triggered.
Collect and analyze historical data of all the devices of the project.
Associate external IDs or additional descriptive data with HERE Tracking resources.
Ingest data from third-party clouds using Virtual Devices.
Shipments are used to describe and track multimodal logistics journeys.
Locations are geographical building blocks for shipments.
