HERE and Geocodio both provide geocoding services. Depending on your use case, one might be a better fit for you than the other.
Most geocoding providers have restrictions on how you use results from their services. Most, for example, won't allow you to store results in database.
It's important to us to try to make your work as hassle-free as possible. That's why we don't put restrictions on how you use our results. For example, a few things you can do with Geocodio that you can't do with other providers:
Results from HERE geocoding cannot be exported, stored in a database, or cached except in specific short-term use cases. Results cannot be reused and you must make a call every time you need an address geocoded, even if you have already paid for it from HERE.
Results from Geocodio are allowed be exported, stored or cached. Geocodio puts no restrictions on how you use the geocoded results. This means you only need to geocode an address or coordinate pair once from Geocodio and can store it as you wish.
HERE geocoding cannot be exported to a GIS platform, such as ArcGIS, Esri, Tableau, or Carto.
Geocodio results come with complete data freedom and can be imported into any GIS platform you like.
No, you cannot show HERE results on a non-HERE map. Addresses geocoded with HERE must be shown on a HERE map. HERE geocoding results cannot be shown on any other brand of map, such as OpenStreetMap or Google Maps.
Geocodio results can be used with any map or map platform. There are no restrictions on how or where you show geocoded results from Geocodio. You can use them on any map platform, including OpenStreetMaps, Mapbox, or Google Maps.
No, HERE geocoding is API-only.
