Here Technologies has announced the beta version of Here XYZ, its cloud management service and API for location data.

Here says the key features of the new product are flexibility in rendering tools, live access to uploaded location data, cloud-based sharing services and a core design principle of interoperability and openness.

The company touts Here XYZ’s affinity for applications requiring live updates, such as news apps created by data journalists and crisis maps for disaster emergency response, as well as facilitating map-making without casual users having to learn to code.

“Location-awareness is the next big thing for products, applications and services. Successful location-awareness depends, however, on location data management. Here XYZ allows developers and map makers to maximize their creative energy by making it easy to manage location data,” said Achal Prabhakar, vice president of Core Map Engineering at Here Technologies.

Here XYZ is built around a Hub XYZ API, which can be invoked by developers directly, or explored via a command line interface. A web-based graphical interface called Here Studio also facilitates simple map-making with data accessed via the API.
