location service

Location services are ArcGIS services hosted by Esri. They include ready-to-use, data hosting, and content management services. Location services include the following: basemap styles service, places service, geocoding service, routing service, GeoEnrichment service, spatial analysis service, elevation service, hydrology service, geometry service, and offline packaging service. All location service operations and parameters are defined by the ArcGIS REST APIs. The services support standard endpoints and enhanced endpoints.

To develop applications that access location services, an ArcGIS Online account or ArcGIS Developer account and an access token are required.
