Introduction

The HERE Vector Tile Service allows you to request tiles containing vector data using content from the HERE platform.

HERE provides global coverage and updates the data continuously.

Vector tiles use Web Mercator projection and follow the Vector Tile Specification. This format contains geometries, such as points and lines that define polygons, labels (such as road names or city names), and other kinds of data that are typically passed to a renderer to draw a map. The tiles are optimized to be visualized as 512px screen pixels per tile.

Each tile in the HERE Vector Tile Service is encoded using Protobuf.

The following figure illustrates map data for New York when rendered.
