Traffic API Developer's Guide


This section examines aspects of the HERE Traffic API in detail, covering:
  • authentication credentials
  • REST request formats and URL construction
  • Traffic API Flow Data Service
  • rendered traffic flow tiles
  • incident data

Further articles in this section offer examples that match various use cases for the API. You can use and modify the examples to explore the API and build your own applications, provided that you replace the demo authentication parameter values with your own authentication credentials.

Deprecation Notice

HERE has changed the way traffic tiles are served. Live traffic tiles have been deprecated in the Traffic API and are now delivered by the Map Tile API infrastructure. Documentation on live traffic tiles is part of the Map Tile API documentation.

This does not affect traffic pattern tiles, which continue to be served by the Traffic API.
