HERE Technologies collaborates with AWS to deliver seamless location services to developers
Location data and services provide essential functionality for today’s products, services and solutions. HERE Technologies, the Open Location Platform company, collaborated with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer developers seamless access to an array of location services through the recently launched AWS Serverless Application Repository.
Through this collaboration, HERE and AWS are increasing the speed and ease in which developers can access and integrate core location services into their applications. Because HERE location services are available in the AWS Serverless Application Repository, developers can rapidly deploy AWS Lambda into their own AWS account that serve as proxies to HERE location services, and thus allows for a microservices approach to calling the HERE locations services. This approach also provides developers with benefits from Amazon API Gateway and AWS Lambda capabilities such as cache, throttling, and authentication.
“Enabling developers to easily consume and integrate location services is our priority,” said Mithun Dhar, General Manager of Developer Relations, HERE Technologies. “Developers on the AWS Serverless Application Repository are now able to easily utilize a suite of HERE location services, including: map images and tiles; geocoding; positioning; routing; road toll costs; road traffic conditions; public transit information; and weather conditions.”
“Thanks to the contributions of APN Partners like HERE, AWS is able to offer a comprehensive collection of customer-focused serverless applications through the AWS Serverless Application Repository,” said Tim Wagner, General Manager of AWS Lambda, Amazon Web Services. Inc. “We’re proud to offer an easy way for developers and companies to get started with HERE’s locations services.”
Developers simply need credentials from developer.here.com to then access the location services on the AWS Serverless Application Repository.
The AWS Serverless Application Repository is currently available in Preview. Learn more about deploying serverless applications to your account by visiting the AWS Serverless Application Repository.
