Geocoder Autocomplete API
- A new Areas mode &resultType=areas has been added to allow only administrative area results (district, city, county, state, country) to be retrieved. This will exclude results with matchLevels of houseNumber, postalCode, street and intersection.
- We reduced the light truck maximum speed to 90 kmph to make it more consistent with a typical permitted truck speed on highways. The change does not affect US and UK where permitted truck speeds are greater than the light truck maximum speed.
- Transit Isoline endpoint has been added.
- HERE Search Catalog (March 26, 2018)
- Map Data updates (March 2018), including HERE Core map data (administrative units, cities, roads, point addresses and extended postal codes)
- Search responses now expose the type of Search executed: default, chain, category-recommendations, category-distance
- The international view for Kosovo has been changed. Kosovo addresses may now contain Kosovo as the country name.
Platform Data Extension API
- The maximum number of PDE tiles per request has been raised from 15 to 64 tiles.
Route Match Extension API
- The maximum number of PDE layers to be returned in the response has been raised from 15 to 32.
Waypoint Sequence Extension API
