    Referring to Online Mapping data has become a well established practice among geospatial professionals. This data provides an easy way to sartup the project. Hence acess to services such as Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, Bing Maps, Open Street Maps etc., must become a feature of ArcGIS desktop extension.

     

    This kind of a funtionality will be useful especially for students, who can dedicate less time and efforts towards thinking about obtaining base data, rather they can spend their time meaningfully on other aspects of projects.
