We are pleased to announce the release of mapstyler 2.0!
Based on user feedback, and as part of our ongoing development process, we have made several enhancements which include:
- Completely redesigned UI
- Sample images
- Mobile device friendliness
- Ability to undo/redo changes
- Input hex values to create custom colour palettes
- Search function
To use mapstyler, simply drag and drop an image onto the map and the vector tiles will inherit the key colours. You can also cycle through sample images which come directly from Unsplash.
Hitting the shuffle button will reorder the palette, meaning 25 styles can be generated from a single image.
It is also possible to change individual colours using the picker and then apply the changes to the basemap.
When you have created your masterpiece, remember to click the Save button which will create a new item in your ArcGIS Online account. This can then be used across all of your maps and apps in ArcGIS Online, Desktop and mobile.
If you require finer control, there are a couple of other handy apps on GitHub that may be useful:
