Change the Tile Set for Arcgis Maps for Better Presentation (Video Tip)

If you want to make your plain and boring maps pop a bit, try this technique! This capability is also beneficial when you want your users to focus on certain levels of detail.

Each of these map providers can be fed properties into the base URL from Dundas BI. If you are playing with any of these and if you find anything interesting, please share them! There’s a lot of potential here that I believe we are ignoring as a community.

Here are some supported options that I’ve discovered with screenshots:
NatGeo_World_Map


USA_Topo_Maps

World_Imagery

World_Physical_Map

World_Shaded_Relief

World_Street_Map

World_Terrain_Base

I also have a full video that walks through some of the many features in the map control… there’s a lot!
