Technical information

Under the hood

HERE Places Footprints is available as a stand-along file in GeoJSON format and leverages the HERE Places dataset, HERE 2D Footprints, and the HERE addressing portfolio. It uses proprietary algorithms and machine learning to develop relationships, establishing connections between buildings, places and addresses. 

Each Places Footprint file publishes the following content:

  • Building footprints representing a 2D geometric building polygon that includes: 
  • References to Places/POIs/Point Addresses within a given 2D building footprint.
  • Confidence score indicating the confidence of a Place or Point Address within the assigned 2D building footprint
  • Basic Place information 
  • Basic Point Address information
