Map themes are categories, styles or types of information that can be represented on a map. Location services can use different map themes to represent different types of information, such as streets, buildings, parks, and bodies of water. The choice of map theme can affect the usability and effectiveness of location services, as well as the level of detail and accuracy of the information provided.


  • Informational value: Map themes provide a way to organize and represent different types of information, making it easier for users to understand data and navigate through it.
  • Customization: The use of different map themes allows location services to be customized for different applications and user needs.
  • Visualization: Map themes can help visualize complex data sets in a clear and intuitive way, allowing users to see patterns and relationships that might otherwise be difficult to discern.
