Base maps on geospatial maps in QuickSight

When you create a map visual in Amazon QuickSight, you can change the base of the map. A base map is the style of map that appears beneath your data on a map. An example is a satellite view versus a street view.

In QuickSight, there are four options for base maps: light gray canvas, dark gray canvas, streets, and imagery. An example of each appears following:

  • Light gray canvas

  • Dark gray canvas

    
                                This is an example image of a map visual with the dark gray
                                    canvas base.
  • Streets

                                    base.
  • Imagery

                                    base.
