Using Amazon Location Maps in your application

Amazon Location lets you create map resources, which allow you to select a map style from an available data provider through your AWS account. You can use map resources to add interactive maps to your application so you can display data such as points of interest, device location and geofences.

To add a map to your application, you must first create a map resource and select one of available map providers and styles. You can then use the resource with popular open-source map SDKs, such as MapLibre GL and Tangram, to display the map in your application.
