Change a map's basemap. A basemap is beneath all layers on a Map and is used to provide visual reference for the operational layers.

Use case

Basemaps should be selected contextually. For example, in maritime applications, it would be more appropriate to use a basemap of the world's oceans as opposed to a basemap of the world's streets.

How to use the sample

When the basemap gallery appears, select a basemap to be displayed.

How it works

  1. Create an Map object.
  2. Set the map to the MapView object.
  3. Create a BasemapGallery using the toolkit.
  4. Bind the Geomodel property from the BasemapGallery object to the MapView map.
