Users of ArcGIS can now take advantage of a wide range of map data from HERE Technologies, following a new multi-year licensing agreement between the two companies. The agreement means ArcGIS users have access to global, accurate and fresh geospatial content, including dozens of new and rich map attributes. The expanded set of attributes will enhance core ArcGIS capabilities of mapping, geocoding, routing and spatial analysis, allowing ArcGIS users to consume these enhanced capabilities in their ArcGIS applications and, at the same time, allow partners and developers to create new and innovative solutions. Esri is also integrating HERE’s historical, real-time and predictive traffic data into the ArcGIS platform. These data streams can serve as a powerful asset in everything from deciding where to build a new road, to developing services for which accurate ETA calculations are critical.
