AWS announces Amazon Location Service (Preview)



Amazon Location Service is a fully managed service that helps developers easily add location data to their applications without sacrificing data security and user privacy. The service is now in preview. With Amazon Location, you can build a wide range of location-enabled applications for use cases such as asset tracking, geomarketing, and delivery management. Amazon Location Service provides cost-effective maps, points of interest, geocoding, geofences, and tracking for applications, using high-quality data from trusted global providers Esri and HERE. At general availability, the service will also provide routing capabilities. You can get started in the Amazon Location Service console with the visual, interactive design tool to explore geolocation functions. Then, you can start building quickly with the service’s SDK and sample code, and combine them with open source libraries such as Mapbox GL. With Amazon Location built-in metrics for health monitoring, you can bring location-enabled applications to production quickly, without the high cost of custom development. Amazon Location Service is available in the US-East (N. Virginia), US-East (Ohio), US-West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) AWS Regions.
