Change the basemap

A basemap provides a background, or visual context, for the data in a map. For example, a basemap showing streets can provide context for your address data. ArcGIS includes several different types of basemaps for you to use in ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint, including aerial imagery, terrain, streets, and topographic data. The default basemap displayed on the map is determined by your administrator. You can change the basemap at any time to one of the other maps provided.

  1. Click the Basemap button Basemap button on the Map tools toolbar to display the basemap gallery.
  2. In the gallery, click the desired basemap to select it.

    The map automatically displays the new basemap.


    The basemaps gallery is populated by the basemap settings of your ArcGIS organization.
