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.

With the help of our user community and partners, Esri is curating an immense and rapidly growing collection of ready-to-use maps, imagery, and geo-referenced data for the world. This online collection of authoritative content, together with the new Web GIS pattern, is having a profound impact on the way people apply GIS.

The Living Atlas of the World is connecting people with information they need to solve problems and meet challenges, and we are seeing evidence of this almost everywhere we look. As a Cartographer, it has been thrilling to watch the rapid increase of Living Atlas content being applied to all kinds of industries.

This issue of Esri News for the Living Atlas Community highlights the enhancements made to the Living Atlas of the World Web App. We have included great examples of applied use of Living Atlas content, including the first set of international stream gauges, new analytical capabilities and enhancements to ocean content, and updates to Esri’s global collection of multi-scale, multi-resolution and multi-source World Elevation services.

This release incorporates new and updated coverage to the World Topographic Map for the municipality of Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands, Queensland, Australia and several cities and counties in the United States and Canada.

Many of our Community Maps contributors are beginning to share their organization’s large-scale map layers. Layers including building footprints, trees, sidewalks, landscape areas and street pavement lend great context to any map. The World Topographic Map is being transformed by our user community. Here are some great examples of this transformation.
