Is there a simple way to add a (say) 1Km x 1Km grid layer (or overlay) to a cartoDB map or Here map so that as when zooms in or out the grid lines remain accurate. (NB. An absolute origination/reference point, while desirable, is not necessary, a consistently implemented grid is sufficient.)

The CDB_RectangleGrid may work for you.

Info about this function at http://docs.cartodb.com/tips-and-tricks.html#grid-visualization-functions


Not sure if it's exactly what you're looking for but I saw this recently put back in the HERE JS API: https://developer.here.com/javascript-apis/documentation/v3/maps/topics_api_nlp/h-map-overlay.html
