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:
- Esri (default)
- Open Street Maps
- Bing Streets
- Bing Ortho + Labels
- Bing Ortho
To switch between the different base maps, select the globe button at the bottom right corner of your map window. A menu will appear with the different layer options.
