Web maps

Map backgrounds provide context for your data. Instead of adding your own background images and potentially viewing out of date information, you can add a web map that uses up to date information from a web map provider. Available map data may include cadastral layers, land topography, or roads. Choose the appropriate service based on availability for your location, your information needs, and your workflow.

If the web map provider requires sign in credentials such a username and password or additional URL information to access the service, you can select and configure the appropriate Sign in method in Origin when you set up the web map, so that your sign in information is passed onto the service when you connect.

For more detailed information on setting up or troubleshooting a web map, refer to the support note Web map support in Origin, which can be downloaded from the Support bulletins page.
