Importing spatial map client included with SAP HANA Spatial

One of the advantages of SAP HANA Spatial is that it includes a map client and other content at no additional cost. This is an example of a spatial application created using the HERE map provided with SAP HANA.

Further down the road, when you license HANA Spatial, you also get access to General Administrative Boundaries (GAB) which can be imported to SAP HANA. The GAB content is provided by HERE and is included with HANA Spatial license. It can be used on top of any maps. In my example below, the GAB is displayed as any typical HANA spatial data on top of an Esri map.
