Data Management

Meet Our New Community Map Contributors. There are 17 of Them!

This is the time of year many are feeling a bit more generous, a little charitable. The ArcGIS Content Team is no exception. We have dug deep into our pocket and pulled out one big ole basemap release. A good reminder to all you authoritative data managers out there to give the gift of map layers this year!

17 new communities have contributed map layers to Esri’s Online Basemaps. Best news you’ve heard all day? It gets even better! Over 35 communities in the United States, Canada and Greece have been updated, too.
