HERE is the world’s leading location data company. HERE is inspired by the fundamental role location technology plays in improving quality of life for everyone – from making our roads safer and air cleaner, to helping enterprises and cities work more efficiently. Through the Open Location Platform, HERE enables organizations from any industry to access location data and services; develop their own innovative products; and monetize their own data through the marketplace.
Built on three decades of experience in mapmaking, HERE is developing the Open Location Platform to provide access to a rapidly-expanding map infrastructure called the Reality Index™. This includes accurate three-dimensional mapping, live traffic and other dynamic information from across our road and transportation networks, as well as data on millions of places. HERE updates the Reality Index™ using billions of data points gathered every day, and apply machine learning to support rapid map update cycles. In the last year, HERE has more than tripled automation in its mapmaking process. And by 2020, 95% of its map infrastructure will be updated automatically – enabling it to serve as a digital model of the world that aids autonomous vehicles, drones, on-demand mobility services, precise indoor and outdoor goods tracking and other advanced services of our emerging autonomous world.
Today, HERE already serves several industries with maps and location services. Our map data powers more than 100 million vehicles globally, as well as leading enterprises such as Amazon, Baidu, Facebook, FedEx, Garmin, Microsoft, Samsung, SAP and Toyota. It has recently begun supporting several smart city projects that apply our expertise in location intelligence to helping solve the big challenges we face as a society.
