  1. Sign in to the HERE platform using your HERE account.
  2. Open the Access Manager from the Launcher.
  3. On the Apps tab, click Register new app and provide the requested information.

    | 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.
