How Amazon Location Service Works

With Amazon Location Service, you can securely add location data to your application. You can begin exploring some capabilities using the visual and interactive tool available on the Amazon Location console. Using the explore tool, you can manipulate a default map, search for points of interest, draw geofences around areas of interest, and simulate sending device location to a tracker.

When you are ready to build, you can create your resources and choose from a variety of map styles and data providers. After you have your resources, you can then install the SDK that matches your development environment, and start using the Amazon Location APIs using instructions from this guide. Additionally, you can integrate monitoring using Amazon CloudWatch and AWS CloudTrail .

The topics in this section provide you an overview of the Amazon Location core components and how to get started with each component.
