Description

(Added at v3.12)
This class contains properties referencing default basemaps used in the JS API that allow you to add map services as default basemaps in web applications. esri/basemaps replaces esri.config.defaults.map.basemaps, which is deprecated as of v3.12.
To view documentation for the baseLayers property of each basemap object, see the BasemapLayer class.
