User Guide / Changing the base map

Changing the base map


By default, you will always be working within a base map layer when you open Equator.

There are different base maps built into the platform that you can switch between at any point, including:

  1. Esri (default)
  2. Open Street Maps
  3. Bing Streets
  4. Bing Ortho + Labels
  5. Bing Ortho

To switch between the different base maps, select the base maps at the bottom right corner of the design sidebar. A menu will appear with the different base layer options.
