Introducing HERE XYZ: Build Dynamic Map Experiences with HERE Technologies
Build maps faster than you can fold one. Working with location data both as a user and even more so as a developer is still more difficult than it should be and often involves running and operating custom infrastructure. Learn how HERE XYZ enables everyone – especially non-GIS users and developers – to manage and integrate real-time location data.
In this session you will be guided step-by-step on how to create dynamic and engaging maps that help developers tell a story with geospatial data.
