    The ESRI World Imagery layer now has metadata enabled that provides a pop-up window to see imagery details such as resolution, source, and date of acquisition, but only when that layer is added to an online webmap as a map layer, not as a basemap. Adding the World Imagery as a basemap does not provide the metadata functionality.


    This causes additional effort to either re-add the same basemap as a map layer, or use an unwanted basemap with the World Imagery as a regular map layer.


    Other basemaps would be improved with the addition of the metadata functionality as well.
