Announcing Open Data Maps for Amazon Location Service
AWS announces the general availability of the Open Data Maps feature for Amazon Location Service. Open Data Maps is a new data provider option for the Maps feature based on OpenStreetMap (OSM), a geospatial data source supported by a global community. Developers can now easily access reliable and up-to-date OSM data with no upfront investment or specialized geospatial knowledge. In addition to the commercial data provider options from Esri, HERE, and GrabMaps, Open Data Maps now gives developers more choices to integrate maps into their applications, enabling them to leverage OSM’s flexible licensing terms and continuously improving data quality.
