Product features

HERE Data Hub CLI on laptop

Manage your data

Upload gigabytes of data in different formats using our flexible HERE Data Hub CLI. Store, organize and retrieve data in near real-time with a powerful REST API for greater control and convenience.

Visualize data directly

Display your geospatial data with the HERE Maps API for Javascript integration with HERE Data Hub. Run server-side clustering to display heat maps, hexbins, point clusters and quadbins. Easily filter large datasets to only get what you need.

Map with route using HERE Data Hub

Build apps

Combine the data management capabilities of HERE Data Hub with our Location Services such as geocoding, routing and traffic to build location-centric applications with your own data.

Control large datasets

Advanced features such as on-demand indexing, virtual spaces, schema validation, clustering and spatial search give you the convenience and flexibility of working with very large datasets.

Features and capabilities


Quickly upload gigabytes of data in different formats including CSVs, shapefiles and streaming data with the flexible command line interface and convert them to GeoJSON with ease.


Interact directly with data stored in the geospatial repository, using API endpoints and any tool of your choice to upload, download and render data. Read, write, update and delete features with the API for greater control.


Create spaces, add and delete features, as well as search by bounding box or tags. Enable the efficient use of geospatial data for large data sets in our secure repository.


Retrieve data efficiently with tags, without querying the entire data set. Style your data as you like by using different tags to accommodate different subsets of data.

QGIS plugin

Connect and update data directly using the QGIS plugin. Publish your work and analysis in vectorized format. Upload public and personal data into QGIS for further analysis.

On-demand indexing

Filter data by requesting features from the Data Hub API, based on the data value properties. Automatically track and index properties as you upload them to be more efficient in downloading what you need.

Virtual spaces

Allow users to enter multiple spaces with one ID for easy collaboration. Bundle your spaces and work on them as one. Write changes back to the original spaces and add properties from one space into the geometries of another space.


Visualize large datasets at low zoom levels by aggregating points. Create a series of hexagon grids based on zoom level and make hexbins via the vector tile service or CLI. We also make quadbins available for larger datasets.

Command-line GIS

Access common GIS functions via the CLI, based on popular geospatial libraries like turf.js and d3.

Spatial search

Search for features in a space within the radius of a point or within a polygon in another space. View download features for further analysis.

Schema validation

Validate the data in your space by uploading a JSON schema file to describe your data formats. Records that do not match the schema are rejected, thus ensuring that the data stays consistent.

Activity log

Monitor changes to your space by activating a connector, which tracks and stores every feature modification in a separate space.
