Amplify has re-imagined the way frontend developers build fullstack applications. Develop and deploy without the hassle.

Use Amazon Location Service SDK

Amplify Android v1 is now in Maintenance Mode until May 31st, 2024. This means that we will continue to include updates to ensure compatibility with backend services and security. No new features will be introduced in v1.

Please use the latest version (v2) of Amplify Library for Android to get started.

If you are currently using v1, follow these instructions to upgrade to v2.

Amplify libraries should be used for all new cloud connected applications. If you are currently using the AWS Mobile SDK for Android, you can access the documentation here.

If you need functionality in the AWS services used by the Amplify Geo category that isn't available, we provide an escape hatch so you can get a reference to that service.

Note: If you provisioned your Geo resources via Amplify CLI, then the IAM policy will be specifically scoped to only allow actions required by the library. Please adjust your authorization permissions accordingly for your escape hatch use-cases.

import android.util.Log;
import com.amplifyframework.core.Amplify;
import com.amplifyframework.geo.location.AWSLocationGeoPlugin;
// Obtain reference to the plugin
AWSLocationGeoPlugin geoPlugin = (AWSLocationGeoPlugin)
AmazonLocationClient locationClient = geoPlugin.getEscapeHatch();
// Send a new request to the Location Maps endpoint directly using the client
ListMapsRequest request = new ListMapsRequest();
ListMapsResult response = locationClient.listMaps(request);
Log.i("MyAmplifyApp", response.getEntries().toString());
import android.util.Log
import com.amplifyframework.core.Amplify
// Obtain reference to the Amazon Location Service client
val geoPlugin = Amplify.Geo.getPlugin("awsLocationGeoPlugin")
val locationClient = geoPlugin.escapeHatch as AmazonLocationClient
// Send a new request to the Location Maps endpoint directly using the client
val request = ListMapsRequest()
val response = locationClient.listMaps(request)
Log.i("MyAmplifyApp", response.entries.toString())
