With HERE Maps powering Microsoft’s mapping services, what’s the best way to report wrong locations info or add new location info to HERE Maps? Nokia has created a tool called HERE Maps Creator which allows you to do this with ease. With Map Creator people around the world can make changes to the map, such as adding new roads, trails or places and updating road or place information, to keep HERE fresh and up to date.
Unlike other community mapping solutions, we work closely with expert mapping communities, who want to contribute with their local expertise to HERE maps, building long lasting relationships through tailored programs and personalized trainings. We have more than a thousand people spread across the globe working closely with experts at universities, GIS groups, local authorities, first responders, industry chambers and others to keep up with the world as it changes.
Nokia is already working with more than 400 communities in more than 100 countries and they are expanding to Map Creator to expert communities in North America and Western Europe. To maintain accuracy and ensure map quality, HERE has built a community map moderation system that allows both our HERE team as well as the community at large to verify edits before integrating them into the base map.
