As part of the June release of ArcGIS Online, Esri has enhanced the World Imagery basemap with new imagery from DigitalGlobe and others in the GIS user community. The updates for June feature new and improved high-resolution imagery for Alaska, Austria, Canada, Colombia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Suriname, Turkey, and other areas.
This is the latest in a series of updates Esri has made to their World Imagery basemap over the past year. With these updates, they have now updated over 100 million sq. km. of imagery in the basemap since they announced their partnership with DigitalGlobe one year ago. The map below highlights the areas that have been updated in this latest release, and the areas that were updated in the previous 9 months.
This is the latest in a series of updates to ArcGIS Online's World Imagery basemap with imagery provided by DigitalGlobe. This update includes Basemap +Vivid imagery for the areas in North America, South America, Asia, and Oceania shown above. The latest DigitalGlobe imagery significantly improves upon the image currency and quality in these areas, as you can see for a few sample areas (tabs 25-30) in the story map below.
