Location services cover a wide range of capabilities. They allow for mapping with custom markers, routing that takes into account traffic and accidents, and geocoding, the transformation of free form addresses to more precise longitude and latitude values. The JAMStack, while involving static web sites, can easily make use of location services in a variety of ways. From client-side mapping libraries to serverless functions, your "static" site can do everything from providing custom directions to your users to emailing them customized maps.
In this talk I'll discuss the location services provided by HERE Technologies (with alternatives as well) and share examples of updating a real static site to make use of them.
