# Map Schemes

Specific map schemes are available to offer your application users a choice among different kinds of map appearance.

## Setting the Scheme

NMAMapScheme.h file defines schemes that HERE map service supports. You can set a desired scheme by changing mapScheme property of NMAMapView. For example:
mapView.mapScheme = NMAMapSchemeNormalDay;

## Map Scheme Example on GitHub

You can find an example that demonstrates this feature at https://github.com/heremaps/ (Obj-C) and https://github.com/heremaps/ (Swift).

## Examples of Map Schemes

All available schemes are defined as constant strings in NMAMapScheme.h file. The string values that your application can use to set a map scheme include:

 Figure 1. NMAMapSchemeNormalDay Figure 2. NMAMapSchemeSatelliteDay
 Figure 3. NMAMapSchemeHybridDay Figure 4. NMAMapSchemeNormalNight
Note: Your application also needs to switch to one of the following schemes if you set traffic information as visible. These map schemes are otherwise identical to their non-traffic counterparts.
• NMAMapSchemeNormalDayWithTraffic
• NMAMapSchemeNormalNightWithTraffic
• NMAMapSchemeHybridDayWithTraffic
• NMAMapSchemeHybridNightWithTraffic
• NMAMapSchemeCarNavigationDayWithTraffic
• NMAMapSchemeCarNavigationNightWithTraffic
• NMAMapSchemeHybridCarNavigationDayWithTraffic
Note: In addition to the preceding schemes NMAMapSchemeSatelliteNight is also available. It is similar to NMAMapSchemeSatelliteDay but the color of the sky is different when the map is tilted.

HERE SDK also offers the following schemes to be used with navigation:
• NMAMapSchemeCarNavigationDay
• NMAMapSchemeCarNavigationNight
• NMAMapSchemeHybridCarNavigationDay
• NMAMapSchemeHybridCarNavigationNight
• NMAMapSchemeCarNavigationDayWithTraffic
• NMAMapSchemeCarNavigationNightWithTraffic
• NMAMapSchemePedestrianDay
• NMAMapSchemePedestrianNight
• NMAMapSchemeHybridPedestrianDay
• NMAMapSchemeTruckNavigationDay
• NMAMapSchemeTruckNavigationNight
• NMAMapSchemeHybridTruckNavigationDay
• NMAMapSchemeHybridTruckNavigationNight
If you are using a pedestrian navigation scheme, it is recommended that you also enable the pedestrian features in NMAMapView. See Maps for more details.
Note: HERE SDK does not automatically switch map schemes during navigation mode. Before starting car or pedestrian navigation be sure to save the current map scheme and switch to the appropriate navigation map scheme. When navigation has completed, your application code should switch back to the previously saved scheme.
