The ArcGIS Content Team recently completed updates to the World Topographic Map. The data for the World Topographic Map is provided by the GIS community. This map is designed to be used as a basemap by GIS professionals and as a reference map by anyone. Thanks to our users and partners who are supporting Community Basemaps and helping build The Living Atlas of the World.
Topographic Map Updates and Useful Maps and Applications
Loaded up with Map Gallery and Open Data sites that leverage not only the Topographic Basemap, but also the Streets, Light Gray Canvas and Imagery Basemaps.
The Falls Church, VA Map Gallery includes a variety of web maps and apps that include topics ranging from Flood Zones, Snow Removal and this Capital Improvements app identifying the capital needs of the community and indicates how these needs will be funded over the 5-year period.
There are several updates in this release including cities and counties in the United States, Canada, Hong Kong and Europe.
In addition to St. John’s, there have been numerous recent updates and new contributors in Canada. Our colleague, Paul Heersink, with Esri Canada has detailed these in his recent blog, January updates to ArcGIS Online basemaps.
These tools provide a simple way for Community Maps contributors to migrate their basemap layers to a format readily accepted by Esri Community Maps, without having to adopt a new data model.
