The HERE Routing API is an HTTP JSON REST API that enables route calculation between two or more locations for various modes of transport across the world. The HERE Routing API provides users with the ability to specify the largest number of options that impact the route calculation, as well as to request any additional route-related information to meet their specific requirements.
HERE Routing covers the following use cases:
Obtain accurate ETAs with routing algorithms that use rich map datasets and dynamically updated information.
Optimize your route by using over 100 parameters.
Get routing instructions in 108 languages for different travel modes, including car, truck, bicycle, two-wheeler, and public transportation.
Car, Truck, Bike, and Pedestrian Routing provide driving and walking directions with instructions in multiple languages. Configure queries to get the shortest or fastest route using real-time and historical traffic information while avoiding road restrictions, areas not compatible with the mode of transportation, toll roads, highways, tunnels, unpaved roads, and seasonal closures.
Traffic-Enabled Routing calculates traffic-optimized routing based on departure and arrival time, real-time traffic, and historical traffic. Route calculations consider a multitude of user-specified options, as well as transportation mode and road restrictions, such as:
HERE Historical Traffic assists users in avoiding traffic and potential delays with historical traffic data at a given location, time, and day of the week.
HERE Truck Routing suggests the most suitable truck routes using truck-specific attributes, keeping in mind the relevant physical and legal restrictions.
HERE Matrix Routing calculates optimized route summary matrices for up to 10,000 origins and destinations. It considers different transportation options and modes for cars, trucks, and pedestrians. The travel time estimates are calculated based on a variety of factors, such as real-time traffic conditions, historical traffic patterns, the time required to perform different maneuvers, and legal speed limits.
HERE Isoline Routing calculates reach zones from or to a given point based on time, distance, or fuel consumption. Addresses the dynamics of gasoline and electric vehicles, as well as physical restrictions such as size, weight, and height.
HERE EV Routing suggests the fastest route for electric vehicles with charging stops, based on the vehicles’ energy consumption details and recharge time. If needed, it can add charging stations to your itinerary to guarantee that the destination can be reached without lacking energy, while optimizing the result for overall travel and charging time.
HERE Waypoints Sequencing finds the optimal sequence of any given waypoints along a route based on the time or distance traveled, or the commercial value at each waypoint.
HERE Route Matching matches the GPS tracks accurately to the HERE road network to get the route that is most likely to have been taken by your moving assets.
Tour Planning is an API that helps fleet owners plan, dispatch, and optimize the routes of their fleets in the most optimal manner. The service solves the Multi-Vehicle Routing Problem (MVRP) by considering the characteristics of the fleet, the network of nodes such as warehouses, distribution centers, or point-of-sales, and the jobs (pick-up or drop-off locations) to be served. Parameters related to the vehicle properties (e.g., capacity, speed profile, maximum distance) and specific constraints (e.g., time windows, opening hours, driver shift times) are considered to calculate the tour plan per vehicle.
Once dispatching has occurred dynamically en route, replanning is possible, allowing new jobs to be added without disrupting the overall operations or cost estimates, and recalculated ETAs are updated on the go.
Tour Planning helps transport and logistics companies optimize the overall costs of operating vehicles within the fleet, comply with transport regulations and customer SLAs, and improve customer satisfaction.
Get accurate conversion and discovery of geocoordinates and addresses for better location precision.
