Power your traffic management solution with reliable data

HERE Real-Time Traffic enables routing applications to get drivers to their destinations faster and more efficiently by providing them with data in the exact place they need it: while they’re on the road. HERE’s GIS traffic data is designed to be highly accurate and display simply so your customers, drivers or you can understand and adjust to directions as needed, without a lot of distraction or extraneous information.

How does HERE Real-Time Traffic data works?

HERE Real-Time Traffic delivers real-time data about traffic conditions through dynamic content feeds with multiple sources of information for each element, allowing it to provide the best possible accuracy for an event, weather, construction or other concerns.

Our real-time traffic data is aggregated and analyzed from a sophisticated mix of sources to accurately reflect real-world road conditions. Sources include probe data, fixed sensors, government sources, billions of historical traffic records and partner APIs, with verification done automatically in most cases and sometimes through direct individual traffic specialists.
