Esri Basemaps - 8 New Contributors, 13 Updates, 3 Countries!

The ArcGIS Content Team is winding down the year with one last basemap release. Don’t be sad, we have a lot planned for 2017! Why not consider contributing to the Living Atlas one of those New Year’s resolutions?

This basemap release includes over 20 communities that have provided new and updated map layers to Esri’s Online Basemaps. They include Japan, the Catalonia region of Spain, and select cities and counties in the United States as seen in this Story Map.
