The Basemaps widget is used for changing the basemap displayed in the application. Basemaps provide different contexts when viewing the map. To open the Basemaps widget, click its button in the toolbar.
The Basemaps widget is shown below.
The following basemaps are available:
- Street Map – shows parcel boundaries, address numbers, streets and street names. This is the default basemap.
- Aerial Map – shows aerial imagery
- Hybrid Map – combines the Street Map and Aerial Map
- Neighbourhood Map – shows boundaries for all neighbourhoods in the city
To select a basemap, click its thumbnail in the widget. The map will be updated to reflect the new basemap.
