Today we are announcing the availability of Map and Location Search UI components for web apps built with React. Amplify Geo, launched last year, enables frontend developers to add location-aware features to their web applications using Amazon Location Service. Developers can now make use of a React component for adding modern mapping features to their React-based web application using a single line of code.

With this release, developers will be able to import the Map React component from Amplify UI (released last year) and include it in their project to display a fully functional Map component. Developers can also make use of additional map features from the underlying React MapGL library to further customize the user experience. Developers also have access to all the existing APIs of Amplify Geo and the Amplify Command Line Interface (CLI) experience to configure their backend resources against Amazon Location Service to implement map and location search features for their web apps.

To add a map to your project, follow the steps in the Amplify UI docs.
