Today, Amazon Location Service added two new HERE map styles for developers, HERE Explore and HERE Explore Truck. With HERE Explore, developers have a new global map that features roads, buildings, landmarks, and water features, including a fully designed map of Japan. With HERE Explore Truck, developers can now display a global map containing truck restrictions and attributes e.g., width, height, HAZMAT, symbolized with highlighted segments and icons on top of HERE Explore to support use cases within transportation and logistics. For example, a customer who manages a fleet of delivery trucks, who needs to calculate the optimal driving route with appropriate restrictions, can use HERE Explore Truck to see driving routes with restrictions shown on the map.

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).
