Updating HERE Data for Emergency Management Routing
The HERE location platform forms the basis for many systems and apps, from in-car navigation systems to package delivery. However, perhaps the most critical use-case for geospatial data is 911 call routing. First responders have no time to waste when they are en route to a call, and incorrect or missing road and address data can cause life-threatening delays. This presentation will look at HERE’s data through the lens of 911 routing and demonstrate how you can get involved in improving the map for this and other applications.
