HERE platform Release notes July 2023

HERE Vector Tile API v2.3

We are pleased to announce the availability of our release 2.3 of the HERE Vector Tile API which provides the layer configurability functionality.

A new content query parameter allows selecting alternative content layer to be included in the vector tile response.

With this enhancement, we also introduce two new advanced content layers that serve to strengthen application development for specific use cases in the Transportation and Logistics industry sector with the potential to greatly improve the user experience. Those two additional layers are:

  • advanced_pois: that include additional Transportation and EV specific POI categories (the alternative to default “pois” layer)
  • advanced_roads: with inclusion of Truck access restriction signs and roads, as well as Truck Toll Road attributes (the alternative to default “roads” layer)

Both new advanced data layers are subject to the new Advanced Vector Tile price rate, as published on the

Splunk Cloud

We have changed from Splunk Enterprise to the Splunk Cloud platform. This change brings a newer version of the Splunk platform for logs to our users which is fully backwards compatible. All configuration items and data has been migrated already and there is no action needed from the user side. You might, however, notice minor cosmetic changes (new dark colour scheme available, updates to some fonts etc.) in the user interface. 

All bookmarks and links are still in place and supported. After authentication you'll be redirected to the new Splunk Cloud platform at

Versioning and automatic version deletion support for interactive map layers

Following the announcement of this support via API only in April, the Portal and Data Client Library interfaces also now support interactive map layer versioning. Reminder: This versioning is specific to interactive map layers and is entirely separate from catalog versions which tie to versioned layers only.
With this version support, interactive map layers support a Time-To-Live configuration based on version, so that you can control storage costs by managing how many versions are retained. Learn more here: Automatic version deletion
