On the afternoon of November 8, 2017, Tencent Global Partner Conference was held in Chengdu. At the Creativity, Location, and Vehicle Alliance Forums, Tencent Location Services and HERE reached strategic cooperation. Tencent location service has thus ushered in a comprehensive upgrade  of its products and services, and its international location service  capabilities have been fully enhanced.
      In  recent years, as overseas travel, study, and work have become more and  more normalized, users’ demand for overseas location services has  increased. Use  shared bikes in Singapore, enjoy all-Chinese grounding services in  Phuket, and order meals in Japan with a beauty group... When you enjoy  these services overseas, you are using location services to provide  services such as location and retrieval The APP application fields such as travel, social networking, travel,  and O2O continue to expand. However, due to the lack of overseas  positioning support, the scope of use of these APPs is often restricted.
        In view of the safety and risk of overseas map mapping, domestic  developers with intention to go to the sea tend to cooperate with  domestic location service companies to achieve seamless domestic and  international handovers and avoid potential risks.
It  is reported that after the strategic cooperation between Tencent  Location Services and HERE Maps, it will rely on its own huge data  ecosystem and professional solutions to integrate the two sides'  superior technologies and resources and jointly develop overseas  location services. The HERE map will open up overseas map data to Tencent location  services, providing strong support for domestic developers in the sea.
        Tencent  is about to open up for developers to apply for international location  service capabilities. Developers will enjoy one-stop access to global  location services and achieve “one-time access and global access,” and  “make location services everywhere.” ".
HERE  Maps is the world's largest digital map provider, holds 80% of the  market share of European and American car navigation maps, and its core  business is to provide location services for automobiles, consumers and  corporate customers through rich map data and a core location platform. With solutions, its map data covers about 200 countries and exceeds 46 million kilometers.
The  combination of Tencent location service and HERE map will undoubtedly  help more companies expand overseas markets and provide users with more  convenient and efficient services.
