The NAVIGATE PLACES product is a very new POIs data product developed from the HERE Places Extract dataset. The HERE source product contains three levels of POI categories allowing generalized-to-very specific search and discovery. It contains intuitive, reality based categories and sub categories. Globally the dataset contain approximately 150,000,000 Places.

Accurate, base information about the Place such as address, location, category, phone number, URL are provided. Where relevant, decision making attribution including hours of operation, payment methods, descriptions, reviews and ratings etc are included.

Different source records are blended together by HERE to create a comprehensive, information-rich and relevant Place that is delivered as a highly nested and complex xml data structure.

NAVIGATE applies extensive processing to this complex xml structure to create flattened ArcGIS Feature classes suitable for the GIS environment.
