Using Indoor Tracking

To track device location indoors, you need to enable Indoor Positioning for your Tracking project by adding indoor maps to the project.

Indoor positioning is based on HERE Venue Maps. The indoor maps for your project can be managed with HERE Indoor Radio Mapper. Instructions for using HERE Indoor Radio Mapper are provided in Indoor Positioning tools page.

After the indoor maps have been added to your project, the devices in your project will automatically use Indoor Positioning for the areas covered by indoor maps.

Prerequisites

Access to HERE Venue Maps

HERE Public Venue Maps are available in HERE Indoor Radio Mapper by default for easy access.

To use an existing HERE Private Venue Map, the map needs to be deployed to your Tracking project by HERE. To achieve this, contact your HERE sales representative.

To deploy a new HERE Private Venue Map, the map needs to be created and then deployed to your Tracking project by HERE. For creating a new Private Venue Map, the following venue information is needed:

  • Venue name
  • Venue address or alignment coordinates for aligning the venue to geographical Latitude-Longitude cordinate system
  • Floorplans with floor numbers
  • Instructions on the required level of detail especially if there are details in the floorplan which are not needed in the venue map

To achieve this and get more details on the needed information, contact your HERE sales representative.

Rendering the Venue Maps in a Web application

The Venues section in HERE Maps Developer Guide has example code on how to render Venue Maps in your Web Application.

The API keys for accessing HERE Maps APIs, including Venue Maps, for your Tracking project can be managed in Admin Portal under 'REST/Javascript' application in 'App IDs' view.
