Customize legacy building styles

When a vector map is in use (Android, iOS, or JavaScript vector maps), buildings use the 3D style beginning at zoom level 17 and higher by default. A Footprints style is also available, which displays only the 2D outlines of buildings for a cleaner appearance. You can customize fill and stroke colors for both types.

Set the building style

To set the building style:

  1. Open the Style Editor, then select the Buildings feature type (under "Landscape, Human-made").
