I download the sample from github. Then I tried to add a custom basemap at the mapOption section. I have followed the instruction given in here. Also, I followed this post as well. But none worked, no map comes out. I only see empty map grid with "esri" logo at the bottom right corner. What have I done wrong ? How can I show a custom (non-cached) basemap in the mapOptions section.

Update : I find out that if i use cached basemap (like http://services.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/World_Terrain_Base/MapServer), it works. I have no luck with non-cached basemap. Then I tried to an older version (1.3.4) too. And its exactly the same, it woks only on a cached basemap.

Here is what I have done using non-cached map service:

  1. Edit viewer.js to add the "Define" keyword and add "mapOptions"
define([  ... 'esri/geometry/Point', 'esri/dijit/Basemap',
'esri/dijit/BasemapLayer' ],

function (units, Extent, esriConfig, /*urlUtils,*/ GeometryService,
ImageParameters,GoogleMapsLoader,i18n, topic, has, Point, Basemap, 

        // tiled layer
        basemap: **new Basemap({
            id: 'soco',
            layers: [new BasemapLayer({
                url: 'http://gis-webpub.sonoma-county.org/arcgis/rest/services/BaseMap/SonomaCountyBaseMap/MapServer/'
        center: new Point({
            x: 6356023.515330248,
            y: 1917313.443425702,
            spatialReference: {
                wkid: 102642
        zoom: 5

Am I missing something ?

  • i find that if i use services.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/… and modify the mapOptions into : mapOptions: { basemap: new Basemap({ id: 'mymap', layers: [new BasemapLayer({ url: 'services.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/…' })] }), center: [0,0], zoom: 5, sliderStyle: 'small', showAttribution: true } It works. So, what kind of map service will work in this mapOptions ? – padjee Jan 14 at 8:52
  • This question seems to be about Beta software: gis.meta.stackexchange.com/q/909/115 – PolyGeo Jan 15 at 11:19
  • The earlier version works like this too. I just tested using 2 different map svc hosted offline : cached and not cached. Only The cached worked... – padjee Jan 15 at 12:16

    In that case I think you should edit your question to focus it on the earlier version. – PolyGeo Jan 15 at 18:37
  • Please do not comment on you own question. Instead, Edit the question to integrate the ne information. – Vince Jan 16 at 0:50
