I attended the UC (virtually, unfortunately) and saw some nice demos of the new Places service (I'm talking about the layer that shows local place names, not the places search API, which I believe is also new). But I'm having trouble finding information about it online. There's a blog post from three years ago: https://www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/arcgis-living-atlas/mapping/new-places-in-esri-vector-base...

and I found this layer info by searching around: https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=177e576ca3c94d5890dc3c790b29c1be but it's marked as a beta and also I'm not very clear how to use it in a map because the service URL is literally just the regular V2 Basemap: https://basemaps.arcgis.com/arcgis/rest/services/World_Basemap_v2/VectorTileServer  if I'm reading it right?

Is there more information available on this service? It looks incredibly useful.

Thanks,

Dan

There is a places integrated with vector tile basemaps but you would have to alter the style like this to get it to just be a layer added to the map. No popups will be returned.

Hi @RussRoberts thanks for your response. In my use case, at least for now, I'm not necessarily looking for the search API per se but rather a way to add the Places data to my web basemaps. Is that something that can be done, at least through client code if not through Online per se?
