    Question:

    How can I create my own Access Tokens for accessing MapBox base mapping? 

    Answer:

    MapThat webGIS will connect to a number of external basemapping resources as long as there is a valid URL and Access Token.

    In order to create an Access Token for using MapBox basemapping you will need to follow the steps below: 

    1 – Visit the MapBox website - https://www.mapbox.com/

    2 – On the Home page choose the Sign In button

    3 – If you don’t have an account…… choose the signup link

    6 – To utilise the Access Token within your MapThat, simple edit the VE_BASELAYERS table and update any existing BASE_URLs for your MapBox layers and replace the previous Access Token value with your new Access Token.
