Hello, I'm using the latest SDK to create a simple UWP app in Visual Studio C# 2017.
What I would like is for the app to display a very basic map, just land in one colour and sea in another plus country boundaries. This is sort of achieved if I select, for example, CreateLightGrayCanvasVector as my basemap.
But, that still has a lot of things on it that I don't want, such as city and country labels and roads / build up areas.
Is there any way to remove these features using code and to just retain the basic map? I presume that this can be done with MyMap.Map.Basemap.ReferenceLayers but I'm unsure how it works.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If I open the basemap in Desktop I notice that the reference texts (most of the texts) are in a separate layer:
I guess you could switch that layer "World Light Gray Reference" off to get less details
... and this is where the guides are: Developer's guide—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (WPF) | ArcGIS for Developers and this one is specific to using Basemaps: Use ArcGIS basemaps—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET (WPF) | ArcGIS for Developers (although I don't see a part that switched a sublayer off).
Code samples can be found here: ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET Samples—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET Samples | ArcGIS for Developers
