HERE Technologies announced Garmin International, Inc., as the latest partner to join HERE Venues Marketplace, a rapidly expanding source for maps of venues such as airports, malls, stadiums and corporate campuses. Access to the Marketplace’s data APIs will allow Garmin to receive up-to-date maps of venues around the world. For users of selected Garmin devices, that would mean being able to use the freshest maps to navigate hassle-free right to where they want to go. HERE Venues Marketplace is a partner and customer ecosystem that is expanding upon the HERE acquisition of Micello in March 2018.The process by which venue maps are created and distributed is simple. Venue owners and facility operators provide their floor plans to HERE Technologies, which HERE Technologies then converts into structured map data. Each venue can opt-in to make the new map available to the marketplace of more than 50 partners, who can integrate the maps into their applications and services.
