Third Party Basemap Providers

To support more basemaps it is possible to use third-party services. VDV supports basemaps from Mapbox and MapTiler.

To use the services it is necessary to signup for a user account at the third-party service. A user token will then be provided that is entered in VDV to connect the two services.

Press the + button to add a new Basemap provider.

Select the Account (Mapbox or MapTiler) and enter the token.

When the account has been configured new Basemap options will appear in the GIS setup.
