Custom basemaps

Pix4Dfields allows the user to use its standard basemap and to add a different basemap by connecting to a tile service.

Default Basemap provider

In Pix4Dfields, the standard Basemap provider is MapBox.

Changing the Basemap provider

To add a custom Basemap provider:


1. In the Dashboard screen, click SETTINGS.
2. In the APP SETTINGS section, click Basemaps.

3. Select Your custom basemap.
4. Type or paste the URL for the map service. 

 

Supported arguments

The table below describes the arguments supported on Pix4Dfields:

{y} or {-y} Y position of the tile, starting at the top/north. Use {-y} if the origin is at the bottom/south (TMS).

    How do you change the basemap in Pix4Dreact?  An online search only has info on Pix4Dcapture.

    Hi Tim,

     

    At the moment, it is not possible to change the basemap for Pix4Dreact. 

     

    Best,

    Teodora
