Required update to ArcGIS Platform location services

On January 27th, 2021, new ArcGIS Platform ready-to-use services location services and pricing were released. The new location services offer many benefits such as API key support and the ability to track and monitor usage in your developer dashboard.

If you have developed an application that doesn't use the new location services, depending on the type of account, API, and authentication implemented, you may be required to update your applications to use the new ArcGIS Platform location services.

In most cases this involves updating the URLs to the new service endpoints.
