New Map Tiles and Layers can be added to edgeCore. To manage the Tiles and Layers for Maps inside edgeCore:
Map Tiles and Map Layers are separated in the user interface. To switch between the two, use the “Map Layers” pull down option in the top left of the panel.
EdgeSuite provides a mechanism to register new map tiles and layers. Possible providers include:
Clicking the + icon located in the bottom left corner, will open the “Add New Base Tile” dialog.
Defines where the Layer information is located.
If the map layer provider uses an access token or api key for accessing their tiles/layers, it is your responsibility to obtain one from the provider. Once you have obtained it, you will create a key name here by clicking the + icon and entering an easy to identify unique name and key value that you received from the provider. To reference the key value, enter the following:
in the layer URL as specified by the provider. The system will replace it with the actual key value when requesting the tiles/layers.
If you have already created one, you can selected an existing key to be used for the same provider of a different tile set or layer.
Key name: mapboxAccessToken
Key value: pk.vyF1IjoiZ29vbGJsYWRlcyIs0mEiOiJNaWZoOXRwano8cXBxcjdseHhsemozcHU3In0.V0j9jrKsaTdLjqetFpySO8
If the layer doesn’t need a key or token, select the Key Name of “None”.

Refer to the leaflet documentation below for a comprehensive list of options:
Or for WMS layer type, the GetMap request parameters should be defined here as well. For example:
layers = vis_1km_900913;
format = image/png;
Make sure the option Names are unique.
Because map tiles contain their own color schemes, map elements have their own localized theme properties. Theme options provide some additional control over how the buttons and toolbars rendered inside the map Visualization will appear.
There are two classes available:
To leave it to the default edgeSuite theme color, clear the class by selecting the empty option.
The following third-party cloud tile services are currently shipped with EdgeSuite. Before using a tile provider on a production system, take special care to confirm that you do not violate the terms and conditions of the service.
You can use this for non-commercial purposes for up to 75,000 map views per month without a CARTO account, as described in the Free Basemaps Terms.
