Today, Amazon Location Service added matrix routing, making it easier for customers to quickly calculate driving time and driving distance between multiple origins and destinations. With matrix routing, developers can use a single API request to reduce the latency associated with multiple routing calculations, allowing them to simplify their code, and improve the experience of their customers. For example, an application that plans delivery routes can now use Amazon Location’s matrix routing capabilities to request the driving time and distance for all deliveries for a given period. They can reduce the number of requests and latency by making one request of up to 350 origins by 350 destination to retrieve 122,500 drive times and distances.

Amazon Location Service is a fully managed service that helps developers easily and securely add maps, points of interest, geocoding, routing, tracking, and geofencing to their applications without compromising on data quality, user privacy, or cost. With Amazon Location Service, you retain control of your location data, protecting your privacy and reducing enterprise security risks. Amazon Location Service provides a consistent API across high-quality location based service data providers (Esri and HERE), all managed through one AWS console.

Amazon Location Service is available in the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney) Region, and Asia Pacific (Tokyo).
