One API for multiple data sets

To make things easy, our API comes with access to other HERE products like HERE Places, 2D Footprints and Places Footprints, all in one interface. More data sets will be added with time.

Flexible to meet your needs

You are free to customize the API output for location context to match your cases, such as the number of POIs you want to see, the POI category, the address and more.

Custom-built for advertising

You can match location context to real-world consumer behavior for more accurate audience segmentation, evaluate your completed campaigns and calculate your campaign’s effectiveness, or both.

Giving control over to you

Instead of providing ready-made audiences, our API gives access to smart location context, so you can further analyze your user data based on location behavior and habits of your customers.

Technical information

Under the hood

HERE Advertising Data Services is a REST API that unifies three components, consisting of three different HERE data sets: HERE Places, 2D Footprints and HERE Places Footprints.

HERE Places

  • A layer with 144 million POIs globally. Query the Places layer to see POIs (cafés, restaurants, shopping malls) within a given radius, ranked according to distance.
  • You can also see nearby public transport data.

 

2D Footprints

  • A layer with over 194 million polygon maps of buildings, including their shape and size.
  • Query the 2D Footprints layer to understand the exact building a mobile location signal comes from.

 

Places Footprints

  • HERE Places and 2D Footprint content brought together.
  • Query the Places Footprints layer to understand the exact building a mobile location signal comes from, and what POIs are around it.
