The basemaps expression box can be changed to one of 3 providers built in to QlikMaps, or, one of your own choosing.

The three accepted vaules built directly in to QlikMaps are:

  • 'MAPQUEST'
  • 'MAPBOX'
  • 'CARTODB'

For custom basemaps, leave Basemaps empty and proceed to Default Base Layer.
