Contributing to Community Maps Just Got Easier

Community Maps Data Prep Tools

One way to contribute to Esri’s Community Maps Program is by using a set of downloadable tools to prepare your basemap layers for submission. The tools are designed to be run in an ‘a la carte’ fashion, only running the tools for the layers being contributed. These tools have been in place since the beginning of the program and have gone through several iterations. All of the functionality improvements and enhancements are based on contributor feedback and suggestions. Data Prep Tools version 4.0 is now available!
