Maps Feedback API
The HERE Map Feedback API is a REST API that allows you to improve the map experience by submitting feedback to HERE and to check the status of the feedback you have submitted.
- Street Level Imagery (SLI) Blurring Feedback Attributes no longer require areaOnImage.
- Added support for product feedback.

Embedded Map Editor
The Embedded Map Editor is a ready-to-use, customizable map editor that provides feedback on maps to HERE. It can be integrated into web and mobile customer environments either as an iframe within a web page or as a WebView/WKVebView component on an Android or iOS device. The Embedded Map Editor enables you to embed an iframe in your pages that allows your customers to provide feedback on HERE maps.
- Can be customized to control the user experience in terms of UI, use cases, and languages.
- Any content submitted via the Embedded Editor is reviewed by HERE before the data in the HERE maps is updated.
