Enums.BasemapStyle enumeration

This is used to determine which basemap to use. These basemaps are secured and require either an APIKey or named user to access them. Only Enums.BasemapStyleArcGISImageryStandard, Enums.BasemapStyleArcGISOceansBase, Enums.BasemapStyleArcGISHillshadeLight and Enums.BasemapStyleArcGISHillshadeDark are supported in both 2D maps & 3D scenes. All other styles use vector tile layers which are currently supported only in maps.

The BasemapStyle can be one of:
