Powerful RESTful API

The RESTful API enables developers to perform granular geospatial functions, such as uploading, editing and publishing geospatial data. Create sophisticated web maps through API calls directly from your app.

Features and capabilities

Style data

Customize the look and feel of your map using an intuitive graphical interface. Choose from different base map styles, use conditional formatting to style subsets of data and create legends automatically to better understand your map.

Edit maps by adding geometry

Add features such as points, lines or polylines to your map, and highlight areas with markers, icons and text labels. Easily edit custom geometry by moving and reshaping. Any edits are automatically updated on your published map.

View data on a map or table

Upload data sets using the intuitive web app, or drag and drop files directly on your Studio map for faster interaction. Switch between map and table view to easily explore and edit data.

Publish your map in minutes

Publish your map in two clicks. Keep it for private use or share it with the world. Leverage an automatically generated URL or embed HTML code directly on your website to display your map inline.


Spaces is a secure geospatial repository for your data. It enables the efficient use of geospatial data, which is key for large data sets. You can create Spaces, add and delete features, and search by bounding box or tags.


Retrieve data efficiently with tags – without querying the entire data set. As tags are associated with a subset of data, you can use different tags to accommodate the different ways you want to use or style your data.

Open data sets

Upload open geospatial data to your Space, including very large data sets. Leverage Microsoft’s building footprint data directly in Studio, and layer all building footprints in the US and Canada. More open data sets will be added.

Streaming upload

Easily upload geospatial data formats that are spread over multiple files using the command line interface. Bring gigabytes of data to the Studio cloud using the -s flag, which will read the file in a data stream and prevent node errors.

QGIS plugin

Connect and update data directly in HERE XYZ using the XYZ QGIS plugin. QGIS users can publish their work and analysis in vectorized format. In addition, public and personal XYZ data can be loaded into QGIS for further analysis.
