Check out the latest updates to World Imagery Basemap

The most recent ArcGIS.com Imagery basemap updates added three brand new Community Map contributions and two updated or expanded community contributions. The new areas are spread around the globe from the “big D” – Dallas, Texas and the infamous grassy knoll of Dealey Plaza across the Atlantic to the streets of Pamplona, where the running of the bulls tradition can be traced back to the 14th century. Imagery was also added over the largest city in the 49th state and to a county in the ‘Land of 10,000 Lakes’. These contributions help enhance content in the Living Atlas of the World. See information below about becoming part of this community. Most of the imagery takes advantage of the recently expanded scales (down to Level 21 or ~1:282). Take this Story Map tour and see the dozen new and updated areas new to the World Imagery basemap.
