ArcGIS Living Atlas

Environment Map Updates

In the Living Atlas, many of the layers are updated with the most recent data annually and sometimes more frequently. In many cases, those updates occur behind the scenes, so as not to disrupt the availability and reliability of the layers. However, some data updates require us to replace existing layers with new ones. When this happens, the old items are removed from the Living Atlas, and eventually retired. On December 31, 2019, we plan to retire 68 layers formerly part of the Environment category of the Living Atlas. Below you will find a list of those 68 items, along with their comparable replacements. If you have maps or apps that connect to these layers, you should update them as soon as possible and before December 31, 2019.
