A map is a container of geographic information. There are different kinds of geographic information within a map: imagery, terrain, and different kinds of vector data. The information in a map is organized into layers. A map contains an ordered list of layers, and draws each layer on top of its preceding layers. In 3D layers may be drawn in Z order and not layer order.

A map has a single spatial reference system. Each of its layers can be stored natively in different spatial reference systems. If a layer has a different spatial reference system than a map it is displayed in, the map reprojects the data to its spatial reference system before drawing it.

A map can dynamically place labels for its features. It finds optimal label locations for each map extent to maximize typographic clarity and to avoid overlaps.
