As an administrator of your organization, you can choose which basemaps and configurable apps your organization uses to create maps, scenes, and apps. You can also set the default basemap, extent, and units, and include a Bing Maps key if your organization wants to use Bing Maps.
- Sign in to the portal as an administrator of your organization.
- At the top of the site, click Organization and click the Settings tab.
- Click Map on the left side of the page.
- Configure any of the following map settings:
- Click Save to save the changes you've made.
You have multiple options for configuring the Basemap Gallery for Map Viewer, Scene Viewer, and apps in your organization.
Basemaps must meet Scene Viewer tiling scheme requirements to display in the Scene Viewer basemap gallery.
Choose one of the following options:
- Esri default vector basemaps—Choose Default from the drop-down menu and check the Use Esri vector basemaps in supported ArcGIS apps box.
- Esri default raster basemaps—Choose Default from the drop-down menu and clear the Use Esri vector basemaps in supported ArcGIS apps box.
- Basemaps from a custom basemap gallery group—To use only the basemaps in a basemap gallery group that you created, choose the group from the drop-down menu and clear the Share the Esri default basemaps to this group when you click Save box. To change how the basemaps are sorted in the gallery, select a field in the Sort by drop-down menu. To change how the basemaps are ordered, check or clear the Ascending box. If you change the sort field or order here, the items on the group page, as well as on embedded galleries or gallery apps, are also changed.
- Basemaps from a custom basemap gallery in addition to Esri default raster or vector basemaps—If you choose a predefined basemap gallery group, you can check the Share the Esri default basemaps to this group when you click Save box and choose to either include Raster Basemaps or Vector Basemaps. You can also sort and reorder the group when you include the Esri basemaps in your group. If you change the sort field or order here, the items on the group page, embedded galleries, and gallery apps also change.
To add more Esri default basemaps (for example, after a site update), check the box again and save your settings. To remove Esri default basemaps, open your basemap gallery group and remove the items you no longer want.
Click Save to apply your Basemap Gallery settings.
Default basemap and extent
If you chose a custom basemap group for the Basemap Gallery setting, choose a basemap from that group that you want opened when users create a new map with Map Viewer or a new scene with Scene Viewer. If you chose Esri Default as the basemap gallery, the default Esri basemap will be displayed for new maps and scenes.
Scene Viewer only uses the specified default basemap if it is supported.
The default basemap opens at the default extent you set. To set the default extent to the extent of your currently selected default basemap, click Use Map Extent as Default. To set a different extent, click Choose Extent in the Default Extent section, and enter numerical values or draw the extent. A locator is included to help you find a specific place or address.
If your organization wants to use Bing Maps in maps, enter the Bing Maps key that Microsoft provided you.
If you enable this option, members of your organization see Bing as an option for adding layers from the web.
Check the box to allow your Bing key to be used in maps shared publicly by organization members (your Bing key will be exposed to the public). This option only appears if your organization allows anonymous access to your site (in the Security section). If you disable anonymous access, the public will no longer be able to see your maps with Bing Maps. To reenable public access of your maps with Bing Maps, you need to recheck anonymous access and recheck the option to allow your Bing key to be used in maps shared publicly.
If you have questions about using Bing Maps with ArcGIS Enterprise, contact your account manager or local Esri office.
Choose a group that contains the app templates you want to use in the configurable apps gallery.
Check to add the current Esri default configurable apps for your language to your group. To add additional Esri default configurable apps (for example, after a site update), check the box again and save your settings. You can also add other Esri public configurable apps not included in the default set (for example, retired apps) by sharing items to your group. To remove configurable apps you added to your group, open the group and remove the items you no longer want.
To change how the apps are sorted in the gallery, select a field in the drop-down menu next to Sorted by. To change how the apps are ordered, check or uncheck the box next to Ascending. If you change the sort field or order here, the items on the group page, as well as in apps, are also changed.
Each app template includes a downloadable ZIP file containing the source code of the application template and a preview version you can display in a web browser. Download the ZIP file and customize the template to deploy it on your own web server. You can also add a customized template back into the portal as a configurable Web Mapping Application item, attaching your source code to the item, so that others can discover and use the template. If you then share the customized template with a group that you specify as the Configurable Apps group, other portal members will see your custom template as an option in the configurable apps gallery.
Choose a group that contains styles for use in Scene Viewer. ArcGIS Pro users who create 3D web style items can share them with this group. Users can access these styles when they style points in the Scene Viewer symbol gallery.
Choose US Standard or Metric as the default units for the map scale bar, measure tool, directions, and analysis. US Standard sets the units to miles, feet, and inches; Metric sets the units to kilometers, meters, and centimeters. Members can set the units they see through their profile page.
By default, no specific set of analysis layers are configured for the portal. As the portal administrator, you can guide portal members to a specific group of layers you have decided are appropriate for use in standard feature, raster, and GeoAnalytics Tools in Map Viewer. To do this, choose a group for Analysis Layers. See Configure analysis layers for more information.
If you do not specify an Analysis Layers group, portal members can still perform analysis on any layer they have access to in the portal by using the Browse Layers option. Note that portal members must use the Browse Layers option to access big data file shares in big data analysis tools.
