Changing Tile Layers for Interactive Maps

Arcadia Instant uses two 3rd-party options for its interactive maps: Google and Mapbox. We use the Tile Layer setting to specify the mapping choice.

Developer Note. To use this feature, an Admin user must specify, through the Site Settings interface, the API keys granted to your organization. This is described in Enabling API Keys for Interactive Map Visuals.

The following steps demonstrate how to switch between Google and Mapbox interactive map representation.

  1. Clone the visual previously built in Interactive Map Visuals.

    For a reminder on how to clone visuals, see Cloning Visuals.

  2. Follow the instructions in Customizing Tile Server to switch between Google and Mapbox map styles.

  3. Click Refresh Visual to see the map rendered with Mapbox option.

    See the Mapbox documentation for more details.
