Display map tiles

Map tiles for parcels in the Santa Monica mountains area

To display tiles from a map tile service, you need to use a client-side mapping API such as ArcGIS Maps SDKs or open source libraries. In most cases, the APIs support a class you can use to make requests to the map tile service with a service URL. The API is responsible for requesting tiles for the visible map extent.

How to display map tiles

The steps to display map tiles are:

  1. Find the URL for the map tile service you want to display.
  2. Set the service URL for the map tile service.
  3. Add the layer to a map.

To access layer data, use a URL with the host, service name, and path to tiles in {z}/{y}/{x} format.

Code examples

Display a map tile layer

To display a hosted map tile layer, you reference the hosted map tile layer by ID or URL and then add the layer to a map or scene. The client application requests the tiles from the map tile service for the current zoom level.

Steps

  1. Create a map or scene.
  2. Get the hosted map tile layer URL.
  3. Add the layer.
