In one of our previous guides, we showed you a button with a paintbrush icon near the upper right corner of your map. This button allows you to change your map style and/or add layers to your map.


How to Change Your Map Style

Step 1

Make sure your screen shows the map page in ShipAtlas.

Click on the button with a paintbrush icon in the upper right corner of your screen.

The "Styles and Layers" menu will appear on your screen.

Step 2

Choose the map style you prefer by clicking on it.

You can choose between a dark theme, a light theme, and a satellite map.

You can also choose between a standard map projection and a 3D globe projection.

You will see the ShipAtlas map changing accordingly behind the "Styles and Layers" menu.

Step 3

Close the menu by clicking on the "X" in the left corner of the menu or by clicking on the map behind it, and enjoy the view!
