Configure site settings

Every site has its own settings and capabilities that Hub administrators, the site's owner, and core team members can configure.

Set a custom basemap and extent

For more information on site mapping capabilities, see 3D web scenes, vector tile basemaps, and more coming to ArcGIS Hub and ArcGIS Enterprise Sites.

  1. Open a site in edit mode and click Settings on the side panel.
  2. Click Set Map and use the dropdown menu to select a basemap provided by Esri.

    Note:
    If a custom basemap has been added to the Basemap Gallery, it will appear in this list. If you don't see the basemap you're looking for, add the basemap to the gallery or contact your ArcGIS Online administrator.

  3. Add an extent by zooming and panning to a location on the map.
    Tip:
    As a best practice, you should set the extent for an item in ArcGIS Online by opening the item's details page, clicking Settings, and choosing Set Extent. Save the changes you've made and return to ArcGIS Hub to save and publish your site. By default, ArcGIS Hub zooms to a dataset's features on a content view, but the settings set by the site may take precedent if no extent has been set for the item.
