    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 Data Model team in Seattle believes the success of the Open Location Platform data exchange, a.k.a. Marketplace, depends on the sharing and leveraging of location based data. Our goal is to enable developers to easily understand and use the location based data in batch or stream data processing jobs to build more valuable derivative data products. We will achieve this by creating canonical data models to enable common usage of data and services to manage the data models. Would you like to join our team?
