The base map is what your data will overlay, providing context to where your data is located. The base map can be Streets, Satellite, or Default.
The streets base map shows the lay of the land by drawing and coloring in features and providing labels to identify roads, buildings, waterways, etc...
The satellite base map shows the lay of the land by means of high-resolution satellite imagery to get an actual birds-eye view.
The default base map combines the best of the two base map options by using the Streets base map when zoomed out and switching to the Satellite base map as you zoom in.
Setting the Default Base Map
Setting the default base map is done within the Map Settings. This is only accessible to Admin users.
