Set Map Style

Mappls offers a range of preset styles to rendering the map. The user has to retrieve a list of styles for a specific account. The listing api would help in rendering specific style as well as facilitate the switching of style themes.

From the below reference code it would become quite clear that user has to specify style names and not URLs to use them. A default style is set for all account users to start with. To know more about available styles, kindly contact

This feature is available from version v5.7.19
