Amazon Location Service expands support to four more regions, Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Canada (Central), Europe (London), and South America (Sao Paulo). Developers in these regions can easily add maps, search for addresses and points of interest, calculate routes, track their assets, and geofence regions of interest, while experiencing the lowest latency response. By using local regions to store sensitive tracking and geofencing data, developers can ensure that their data remains in the country where it is collected and that it adheres to data residency restrictions.

Amazon Location Service is a location-based 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.

Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Stockholm), and South America (São Paulo).
