If you want to get started quickly, here is a tutorial to style a vector basemap with VTSE.

What can you do with VTSE?

  • Copy, edit, and customize your own basemap or vector tile layer: change colors, text formatting, and sprites.
  • Choose from hundreds of basemaps in the ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World.
  • Customize which data is visible and how it will appear at different zoom levels.
  • Upload and customize basemaps, and stylize Esri's copies of Open Streets Map basemap data.
  • Change the size and colors of sprites, and upload your own images.
  • Publish your stylized basemap on ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise and add your basemap to your mapping app.

How do I use the VTSE interface?

VTSE is composed of the map view and various editors and operations available by clicking the following icons:
