Amazon Location Service adds support for place categories

Today, Amazon Location Service added support for places categories, allowing developers to request, filter, or group places based on specific categories such as coffee shops or restaurants. Developers can use places categories to improve the relevance of their searches, increase the accuracy of their location-based insights, and improve their customer experience. For example, a developer working on a food delivery website can build a search box that filters on restaurants, autocompletes user inputs, and only suggests results relevant to their customers.
