Annotation is how we at HERE
Incorporate measures the success of our HERE mapping software. When changes are made to HERE Maps,
annotation informs us if those changes are better or worse for our map users. As an annotator, you will
help to: 1) determine the possible intent of map user-entered map searches, 2) determine the value of a
geographical point-of-interest (POI) being returned as a map listing, and 3) confirm information about
POIs using web-based research.

displayed through specific task templates on the annotation website. All Annotators follow task-specific

assessments every quarter. Within that structure, annotation workers must be creative and open-thinkers.
An Annotator is an Individual contributor. Annotators work independently and

feedback to other annotators as necessary. This long-term position is expected to take 20 hours each
week with flexible work hours as determined by the annotator.

make decisions based on the utility provided by the HERE map search responses, or the correctness of the
attributes associated with a POI. Collectively, this data allows the HERE Team to make informed changes
to the HERE mapping software and determine database quality. Without annotation, we cannot measure the
quality impact of HERE maps software development.
