I posted an answer about how to add a BaseLayer as Rasterlayer some weeks ago: High resolution, printable alternative to OpenLayers plugin for QGIS? . What I described there can also be used for HERE-Layers. As user Mapperz already mentioned you need an app_id and app_code to use Here-Tiles. You will get these credentials here: https://developer.here.com/...

I'm on the Bing Maps team and have worked closely with HERE for many years. Bing Maps uses a number of different data providers for different types of data. Most of the road data comes from NAVTEQ (now owned by Nokia HERE) and has been the primary data provider for Bing Maps since 2005 I believe. In certain countries other data providers are used. Most ...

Option 1 I'm not sure you can add here.com using that dialog, it's specifically for OGC Web Map Services (WMS), but Here.com isn't as far as I can tell an OGC WMS. Option 2 here.com exposes both a JavaScript API and a REST API, so you should be able to do something programmatically.

Ah, this question. First, let me say that I work for an address validation company, SmartyStreets, but I will try to be objective. US Geocode data generally comes from two basic sources, FREE and EXPENSIVE. Let's go there for a little bit. Free geocode data comes from the US Census Bureau. Some will tell you that it comes from USGS or even from the ...

What seems to happen is that the composer tries to print a larger map on a smaller area to go from 72dpi (assumed screen resolution) to 150/300dpi. It even looks like it zooms out automatically... Try adding &ppi=320 as a URL parameter to the server URL. That should scale up the labels enough for your print resolution.

I suspect Nokia HERE is using the same map technique as Google and bing. So try EPSG:3857 formerly known as EPSG:900913.

First of, the Google map JS clients are not Vector based. The effect of displaying e.g. text at the same size when zooming is a result of tiling and by providing new images for each zoom level. For web based application or applications that fetches tiles from a server you can find out wether a map is vector or raster based by inspecting the network traffic....

You can still use the L.tileLayer with CartoDB.js/Leaflet map object, just switch it's url param to a Nokia xyz url. Nokia has examples here including Transit Day, notice that your app id & code are appended to the url: https://developer.here.com/rest-apis/documentation/enterprise-map-tile/topics/examples-base.html

Perhaps this wiki page can help make things a little clearer: Administrative divisions of the Philippines. The page mentions the three terms you used plus an additional one for villages (quote copied from the wiki page provided): The Philippines has four main classes of elected administrative divisions, often lumped together as local government units (...

Using Bing, Google HERE, or any of the other enterprise mapping providers would require that the base maps also be from the same provider, with the exception that you can mix Bing and HERE data together. Bing Maps is a good choice as it has most of the data HERE has, but in some countries uses other (better) data providers, for instance, China, Japan, and ...

My experience with HERE data is that it is not as updated as either BING, or GARMIN or APPLE. Case in point, I have a 2015 car with GPS that did not have data on a new home development (built in 2013). I just paid for a 2017 update - and the HERE data file still does not include those houses, or addresses. My Garmin NUVI 3790 does have those houses and ...

In this case the most likely difference is related to year/date of the capture and the ground sample data (GSD) e.g. 6in vs 9in etc... Also, other factor can be involved, sun angle on the day of capture, type of camera and specifications. Processing etc...

DigitalGlobe is the name of a private company that navigates several Earth observation satellites (listed here). It is difficult to find out the actual satellite that took the picture, but the spatial resolution should provide a good hint. Besides the obvious difference in dates of acquisition (change), there could also be a difference between the sensor ...

To try and reproduce your problem, using the same two coordinate systems as you on some test data that I created, I ran the test code below: import arcpy srWGS84 = arcpy.SpatialReference("WGS 1984") srWebMerc = arcpy.SpatialReference("WGS 1984 Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere)") arcpy.CreateFishnet_management("C:/Temp/testWGS84.shp", ...

You cannot use JavaScript in ArcGIS for Desktop. There doesn't seem to be a WMTS or WMS service available for HERE maps, so an alternative would be to install the ArcBrutile add-on: https://github.com/ArcBruTile/ArcBruTile/ . It should support Here, according to its project page. See also: How to add HERE maps to ArcMap?

There's an example in PHP for getting a speed limit for a location using the PDE here: https://github.com/seaBass3/here-pde-speed-limit/blob/master/Here_PDE_Demo.php <?php //To run this example use the following URL //{Your Domain}/Here_PDE_Demo.php?coords={"lat": 30.192327, "lng": -81.727523} if ($_GET['coords']) { $coords = json_decode($_GET['...

Bing Maps has several large aerial imagery and road data updates planned over the next several months. Some of these have already started. US aerial imagery should be updated in the next couple of months.

A WMS usually only displays a raster background. If the provider has enabled it, you can get additional information per mouseclick. Heremaps does not seem to do that, Openrouteservice neither. You can however download address data from OpenStreetMap, if someone has added it to the map. There is however not much adress information available for Malaysia.

I am posting this as an answer it hope it might be useful to someone else, even though the solution is not as good as Martin's suggestion: This is what I've tried: Backcountry Navigator Google Earth Here Maps OsmAnd Locus Map OfflineMaps & Navigation POI pocket GPS Navigation & Maps Maps.me Poiloader None of the programs is really great. ...

The CDB_RectangleGrid may work for you. Info about this function at http://docs.cartodb.com/tips-and-tricks.html#grid-visualization-functions

Harshit, this is a bit of an open-ended question where I'm not sure what is your current setup, what technologies are you using or going to use, etc. Perhaps if give us more details, we can help you more specifically. With such a general question, I give you a general answer: Both HERE and Google Maps have JS APIs. I would start with studying those: HERE: ...

They have semi-rebranded but you could try to contact them directly at the link below. http://here.com/abouthere/contactus/?lang=en-US If that does not work, you may have to try to contact Nokia directly. Supposedly, Nokia held on to Navteq/HERE after selling assets to Microsoft.

Yes. I have observed this discrepancy in Google maps and OpenStreetMap data. Basically shape or position of the road would be slightly different. So if you perform map matching (google snap_to_road or OSRM match) with respect to one data source and visualize it on the other there would be some inconsistencies. Two simple ways to tackle this: Use the same ...

If you are using same location (latitude and langitude) on all maps, then there is little possibility of descrepancy due to location. It is possible that the maps have descrepancy among themselves. You can compare accuracy of google and osm map at mapcompare. See if there is any descrepancy.
