Get started

HERE Data SDK for TypeScript provides an interface to access the HERE platform. It is a modern, lightweight, and modular SDK with minimal dependencies. The Data SDK repository is a monorepo that contains the core components of the platform SDK organized in the NPM workspace.

The Data SDK package contains independent modules that focus on a specific set of responsibilities:

  • olp-sdk-authentication – gets OAuth2 bearer tokens used to confirm platform requests.
  • olp-sdk-dataservice-read – gets layer and partition data from platform catalogs.
  • olp-sdk-dataservice-write – writes data to layers.

All the modules can be found in the @here subdirectory.

HERE is committed to respecting your privacy and to complying with applicable data protection and privacy laws. For more information, see the HERE Privacy Policy.

For more information on HERE data security and durability best practices, see the Data API.

Backward compatibility

We try to develop and maintain our API in a way that preserves its compatibility with the existing applications. Changes in Data SDK for TypeScript are greatly influenced by the Data API development. Data API introduces breaking changes 6 months in advance. Therefore, you may need to migrate to a new version of Data SDK for TypeScript every half a year.

For more information on Data API, see its Developer Guide and API Reference.

When new API is introduced in Data SDK for TypeScript, the old one is not deleted straight away. The standard API deprecation time is 6 months. It gives you time to switch to new code. However, we do not provide ABI backward compatibility.

All of the deprecated methods, functions, and parameters are documented in the Data SDK for TypeScript API Reference and changelog.


To start using the Data SDK, you need an platform user account.

Working with the Data SDK requires knowledge of the following subjects:

To learn about the dependencies and how to install, build, and test the Data SDK, see the related documentation on GitHub.
