  • VectorEsriStreets – The Esri World Streets map style, which provides a detailed vector basemap for the world symbolized with a classic Esri street map style. The vector tile layer is similar in content and style to the World Street Map raster map.

  • VectorEsriNavigation – The Esri World Navigation map style, which provides a detailed basemap for the world symbolized with a custom navigation map style that’s designed for use during the day in mobile devices.

Valid HERE Technologies map styles :

  • VectorHereContrast – The HERE Contrast (Berlin) map style is a high contrast detailed base map of the world that blends 3D and 2D rendering.

  • VectorHereExplore – A default HERE map style containing a neutral, global map and its features including roads, buildings, landmarks, and water features. It also now includes a fully designed map of Japan.

  • VectorHereExploreTruck – A global map containing truck restrictions and attributes (e.g. width / height / HAZMAT) symbolized with highlighted segments and icons on top of HERE Explore to support use cases within transport and logistics.

--description (string)

An optional description for the map resource.

--map-name (string)

Format: "key" : "value"

Restrictions:

  • Maximum 50 tags per resource

  • Each resource tag must be unique with a maximum of one value.

  • Maximum key length: 128 Unicode characters in UTF-8

  • Maximum value length: 256 Unicode characters in UTF-8

  • Can use alphanumeric characters (A–Z, a–z, 0–9), and the following characters: + - = . _ : / @.

  • Cannot use “aws:” as a prefix for a key.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"
  ...}

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.
