HERE Technologies is extending its suite of location services to China. As a result, global and Chinese customers will have access to up-to-date mapping services as well as key location-based features and functionalities for China to address the Chinese market.
HERE will offer these services through its joint venture with NavInfo, a provider of digital maps and location services in China. NavInfo is providing the mapping data for China, and HERE is processing and ingesting it following its own worldwide specification. According to the company, this allows for easy compatibility with the mapping and location services HERE offers for the rest of the world.
The suite of location services HERE will offer for China include:
• Map Display (including map rendering and 3D maps);
• Routing (including vehicle, pedestrian, bicycle and public transit routing as well as traffic-enabled routing);
• Navigation (both hybrid and offline for vehicles and pedestrians);
• Public transit;
Supported by this expansion into China, HERE is targeting strong growth in China itself as well as with Chinese customers.
