TwitterFacebookRedditLinkedInHacker News

I’m pleased to announce that a new course has been published, this time on the subject of maps and various location services. This course titled, Maps and Location Services with HERE by Example, focuses on building web applications using JavaScript and products by HERE Technologies.

In this course you’ll see many step by step examples on how to work with interactive maps, geocode and reverse geocode locations, calculate different types of routes, and more.

To get an idea of what’s included in this course, take a look at the following lesson titles:

  • REST Tokens, JavaScript Tokens, and the HERE Developer Portal
  • Exporting a Map as a Static Image for Rendering and Downloading
  • Displaying an Interactive Map with Simple JavaScript and HTML
  • Include Markers, Polylines, and Other Map Objects in a Project
  • Interacting with a Map and Objects on the Map
  • Geocoding Addresses for Latitude and Longitude Positions
  • Highlight Regions on the Map by Country, State, City, or Postal Code
  • Suggesting Addresses with Data Provided by the User
  • Search for Points of Interest and Include Them on the Map
  • Calculating and Drawing Routes to Places on the Map
  • Calculate the Regions that can be Reached with an Isoline and Range Criteria
  • Consume HERE Map Tiles in External Rendering Frameworks like Leaflet.js

If you’re interested in getting started with HERE Location Services (HLS), you can enroll in the course here.

There’s several hours of content designed to make it incredibly easy for you to get started. By the end of the course you should feel comfortable using many of the HERE APIs whether that be through the JavaScript SDK or the available REST APIs.
