Customizing Esri's Basemaps
Note: You can't edit Esri's basemaps directly. You may have to first make a copy of the Esri vector tile layer, and then stylize the copy.
Choose one of the pre-installed basemap in
Vector Topographic, or choose any of the basemaps in the Living Atlas.
Then make a copy of the map, and open the copy in the map viewer in ArcGIS Online.
Hover over the basemap, and then click the Change Style button to open VTSE:
Go to your ArcGIS Developer dashboard, scroll down, and you'll see options to create a new basemap layer:
If you click Create New Basemap Style, you'll be taken to: developers.arcgis.com/vector-tile-sytle-editor.
On the starting screen, click Get Started. You'll then see a basemap selection screen. In the top row, select the category All Esri Basemps. Now, click on any basemap:
Click Select Style when you've made a choice, and that's it.
The VTSE will then open, and you can begin to style any of Esri's basemaps!
