A quick tutorial on adding basemaps to your account. In this video we will show you how to add MapBox, XYZ, and WMS basemaps to your CartoDB account. Once those basemaps are added to your account, you can use them in any visualization you create!
Remember, when adding basemaps to add credit and attribution when necessary! Also, keep in mind that mapviews to your MapBox baselayers will be counted in your MapBox account and could lead to charges.
