In case you missed the original announcement back in mid-December, National Geographic and Esri have collaborated on the production of a new basemap that reflects the NG cartographic design, typographic style, and map policies.

This basemap provides a visually appealing background for web mapping applications for mobile users, consumers, and educational purposes, and is also well suited as a general reference map for many GIS projects.

Here are some samples from this basemap.
