Basemaps and layers are available on the iOS App right from the map view. To get to the map view:

  1. Select the app that you are going to work with from the apps list

  2. If you do not see the map view, select the 'Map View' option on the lower left corner of the screen

Accessing the Basemaps and Layers

From the map view, you will be able to select the basemaps and layers button.

Access Basemaps and layers by clicking the icon on the Map View.


Once you click on the basemaps and layers button, the available options will be displayed at the bottom of the screen. From here you can select between the different basemaps available, just by clicking on the desired one. Basemaps may also be downloaded for offline use.

Select between the available Basemaps by tapping on them.

Custom Layers

Right below the Basemaps you will find your custom layers. These could be added to Fulcrum through the web app or added by authenticating with ArcGIS. From this section, you can enable, disable, or change the ordering of your layers. Multiple layers can be arranged on top of one another. You even have the option to download some layers for offline access.

Enable your layers by toggling on the switch located on the right.

To arrange the order of the layers tap the ‘edit’ button and then drag the layers into the desired position.

There is a search option as well to help you get to the one you need faster.

Right below the layers, you will also have the option to 'Connect to ArcGIS' to access your Feature Service Layers if you haven't already.

Downloading Layers for Offline Use

Both MBTiles Layers and ArcGIS Feature Service Layers can be used offline.

To download an MBTiles layer, click on the 'Download' button just below the layer title and description.

To download a Feature Service Layer, select the 'Make Available Offline' button under the layer title and description.

We recommend that you download your layers in advance when your device is connected to a WiFi network or with a strong cellular connection.

After the layer has downloaded, you will see a green message that says that your layer is "Available offline".
