    As our digital and physical lives become increasingly inter-connected, our map of the world is rapidly changing. With every connected device or sensor capable of generating and sharing its context and location, it is data that will connect this complex new world. The question is how do we make better use of that data and transform it into useful services for people and organizations – all in real-time?

    Our answer is the HERE Open Location Platform.

    The Open Location Platform Big Data Processing team believes the value of a platform is directly related to the convenience of the platform. Our goal is to enable developers to easily conflate HERE Reality Index content with their own data using off the shelf batch or stream processing technologies. We will achieve this by providing a self-serve Apache Spark and Apache Flink managed cloud service for developers to run their batch or stream location based data processing jobs.
