The HERE platform is a one-stop shop in the cloud for location-centric data exchange, visualization, and solution development. The components of the platform are data and services, HERE Workspace, HERE Studio, and HERE Marketplace. You can create interactive maps with full customization of style and color, visualize static and dynamic location-centric data, and generate insight from the location data patterns in the platform. The platform also allows you to build location intelligence into your web and mobile applications using our highly configurable and scalable location services such as Geocoding and Search, Routing, rendering (Map Tiles and Map Image), Transit, Geofencing, Tour Planning, and Positioning. And then you can share or monetize your own location-centric offerings on HERE Marketplace in the platform. Check out the Tour of the HERE platform blog for more information.
