This section outlines how to get started quickly using the HERE Vector Tile Service on the HERE developer portal.

  1. Get a HERE Account
  2. Register your App

  4. Send a Request

Note

This section provides information on the minimum setup required to begin quickly using the HERE Vector Tile Service. For more detailed information on HERE account setup, app registration, and authentication, see the Identity & Access Management Developer Guide.

Get a HERE Account

If you are an individual developer who has signed up for one of the plans listed on our Developer plans page on developer.here.com., you received a HERE account ID when you signed up. You can use your HERE account to log in to developer.here.com. to create applications. Applications (uniquely identified by an app ID) enable development with HERE products and services.

Register your App

To register your app, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to developer.here.com.
  2. Click your name, select Projects, and then choose your project from the list. Your project details and available application credentials are then displayed.
  3. Select JavaScript or REST and click Generate App. When your application is created, its app ID is displayed.

Get an API Key

To get an API key, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to developer.here.com.
  2. Click your name, select Projects, and then choose your project from the list. Your project details and available application credentials are then displayed.
  3. Click Create API key to generate a maximum of two API keys for your application. The API key is created and displayed.

Send a Request

To send a request, follow these steps:

  1. Select a zoom level value between 0 and 17.
  2. Convert your latitude and longitude into col and row values. For more information, see Mercator Projection.
  3. Request the tile.

    For example, the following command requests a tile with a base layer using Mercator projection at zoom layer 11, with x and y coordinates at 1100 and 673 respectively in Map Vector Tile open specification format:

    Bearer token
    | Apikey
    curl -H "Authorization: Bearer TOKEN_HERE" "https://vector.hereapi.com/v2/vectortiles/base/mc/11/1100/673/omv"
    curl "https://vector.hereapi.com/v2/vectortiles/base/mc/11/1100/673/omv?apikey=APIKEY_HERE"
  4. Decode the tile using the related Protobuf schema.

Note

The above request provides examples of both API key and OAuth token authentication. For more information on OAuth token authentication, see the Identity & Access Management Developer Guide.
