License Platform Language Platform Language

In this repository you can find the latest example apps that show key features of the HERE SDK in ready-to-use applications.

About the HERE SDK

The HERE SDK enables you to build powerful location-aware applications. Explore maps that are fast and smooth to interact with, pan/zoom across map views of varying resolutions, and enable the display of various elements such as routes and POIs on highly customizable map views.

The HERE SDK consumes data from the HERE Platform and follows modern design principles incorporating microservices and modularized components. Currently, the HERE SDK supports three platforms: Android, iOS and Flutter.

For an overview of the existing features, please check the Developer's Guide for the platform of your choice. Here you will also find numerous code snippets, detailed tutorials, the API Reference and the latest Release Notes:

For now, the Navigate Edition is only available upon request. Please contact your HERE representative to receive access including a set of evaluation credentials.

Most example apps contain a class named "XY-Example" where XY stands for the feature, which is in most cases equal to the name of the app. If you are looking for example code that shows how to use a certain HERE SDK feature, then please look for this class as it contains the most interesting parts. Note that the overall app architecture is kept as simple as possible to not shadow the parts in focus.

Not all examples are available for all editions and platforms.
