With this release, developers can add modern, interactive maps with location markers to their production web apps, using geographical data sourced from Amazon Location Service. Developers can either add these maps to script tags in HTML pages with just a few lines of code, or bundle them into their React apps via an NPM package. Amplify Geo allows end-users to search for points of interest (POIs), business names, or street addresses, and have their results presented as both a list and as markers on a map. Amplify Geo also provides map styling capabilities, so developers can tweak embedded maps to complement their apps’ theme, or developers can choose from many community-developed MapLibre plugins for more flexibility and advanced visualization options.
