Amazon Location Service has updated the Maps service to include a richer set of places, such as shops, services, restaurants, attractions, and other points of interest, in one of our map styles. The updated Esri Navigation style now provides developers the option to display a detailed map with global places content for reference or navigation purpose.

Amazon Location Maps enable developers to easily embed an interactive map into their web and mobile applications. Customers can choose from 17 available map styles to match the intended use case. The updated Esri Navigation map style now features a set of additional points of interest content with global coverage and frequent update schedule. Customers can use this updated map style to support many use cases that require rich places context, such as food delivery, real estate search, trip planning, and more.
