The HERE Traffic API v7 is a REST API that provides real-time traffic flow and incident information. This document introduces the Traffic API v7 and explains key concepts, while providing examples and information on resources, query parameters, response structures, and data types.
The HERE Traffic API v7 supports the following use cases:
- Provides access to real-time traffic flow data in JSON, including information on speed and jam factor for the region(s) defined in each request. The Traffic API v7 can also deliver additional data such as the geometry of the road segments in relation to the flow.
- Provides aggregated information about traffic incidents in JSON, including the type and location of each traffic incident, status, start and end time, and other relevant data. This data is useful to dynamically optimize route calculations.

Data privacy is of fundamental importance to HERE and our customers. We practice data minimization and don’t collect data we don’t need. And we promote pseudonymity for data subjects wherever a service does not require personal information to function. We employ privacy by design in services we develop. We strive to go beyond mere regulatory compliance and make privacy an integral part of our corporate culture. We believe that our approach to privacy is vital to earning and retaining the trust of our customers – and the bedrock of our future success as a data-driven location platform.
