Use third-party Basemaps as your Map background.
Waymark uses the excellent OpenStreetMap as it’s default Basemap and allows integration for services that support tiled web maps. If you have more than one Basemap, you can switch between them when viewing the Map.
Adding a Basemap
There are many Basemap providers to choose from. This page is a great place to preview some of them.
They require registration, but have a free usage tier.
Basemaps can be configured in Waymark > Settings > Basemaps.
To add the Thunderforest Outdoors Basemap, we simply enter the style URL provided:
Maps © <a href="http://www.thunderforest.com">Thunderforest</a>, Data © <a href="http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright">OpenStreetMap contributors</a>
Pro Tip! The first Basemap listed will be used by default, unless you specify a different one using the Shortcode.
