ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java

Tiled Layer (URL)

Demonstrates how to display an ArcGISTiledLayer on an ArcGISMap as a basemap.

This service pre-generates images based on a tiling scheme which allows for rapid ArcGISMap visualization and navigation. An ArcGISTiledLayer can also be added to the ArcGISMap as a layer but it's best practice to use as a basemap since its purpose is to provide geographical context.

How it works

To add an ArcGISTiledLayer as a Basemap to an ArcGISMap:

  1. Create an ArcGISTiledLayer from a URL.
  2. Create a Basemap passing in the tiled layer from above.
  3. Set basemap to ArcGIS map, ArcGISMap.setBasemap().
  4. Set map to mapview, MapView.setMap().
