Improved Bing Maps Resolution

Idea created by stucas on Jul 24, 2011
    The available resolution of the Bing Map Layer varies depending on what aea is being used. More regional and remote areas have a more global scale and zooming beyond those results in very poosr backgorund imagery. It may surprise some but many mapping projects are conducted regional and remote areas where a more accuarte aerial image is invaluable.

    Additionally, the joing between these varying resolutions feature some very amatuerish stiching together of tiles and features gaps of blank space (see attached screen shot). The addition of Bing Maps to ArcGIS has been a great advance but the variable and unpredicatble resolution often causes problems when mapping in regional and remote areas. An improved image cache would inrease the value of the feature immeasurably.
