Here Technologies has released data layers to give software developer and data scientists access to cartographic features on its mapping platform.

The layers are stand alone geospatial representations of road networks, pathways, buildings, structures, places, land use and land cover to power location-based functions and applications.

"[We have] been the leading global B2B mapmaker for decades," claimed developer relations chief Mithun Dhar. The company was 'disaggregating' its map to give developers high quality, consistent geospatial data.

The offering consists of customisable data sets in GeoJSON format and can be used for things like map display, spatial analytics, business intelligence and AI/ML analysis.

The layers are available via the company's Freemium developer plan.
