Updates to OpenStreetMap Vector Basemap Styles in ArcGIS Enterprise

As we recently announced, the OpenStreetMap vector basemaps on ArcGIS Online will be updated to use OSM Daylight distribution data content. Another blog we posted details the impact to users of OSM basemap styles. Here in this post, we will provide details on the impact to ArcGIS Enterprise users who are using these services via Living Atlas. OSM tile layer styles will need to be updated. The changes to the map styles applies to both the Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere (WMA) and WGS84/GCS OSM vector basemaps. The change to the underlying source data that requires these new styles is scheduled for release on Wednesday night, June 16, 2021.

ArcGIS Enterprise organizations using these OpenStreetMap layers by referencing them directly from ArcGIS Online are not affected by this update. In this scenario, the styles are referencing the most up to date Online items.

Impact to OpenStreetMap Vector Basemap Users in ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8, 10.8.1 or 10.9

To take advantage of the enhancements for OpenStreetMap vector basemaps in ArcGIS Enterprise and display OpenStreetMap tile layers correctly, your administrator will need to update the OpenStreetMap Living Atlas items installed on your ArcGIS Enterprise portal.

OpenStreetMap tile layer items are included with Living Atlas default content at 10.8, 10.8.1, and 10.9. Use the table below for a complete breakdown of items included at each version.

Noticeable changes

After the source tile set is updated with OSM Daylight content on Wednesday night June 16, 2021, if the OSM tile layers on your portal are not updated, some map features will not display. Here are two examples of the OpenStreetMap style that hasn’t been updated (left) and a style that has been updated (right).

OSM ArcGIS Enterprise differences
On the left are several examples when the OSM style has not been updated. (Top left) Administrative labels for countries and states will not show if the style is not updated. (Bottom left) At larger scales, buildings and road labels will not show if the style is not updated. (Right half) Full map features display when the map style is updated from the files provided.
