We’re excited to now be rolling out ArcGIS Earth 1.14 on Nov. 18, 2021! Download this latest release of ArcGIS Earth on our website, and visit the ArcGIS Earth Resources page for free training materials and tutorials. 

This major release brings support for new data types, huge improvements in imagery rendering, freehand drawing, and a lot more. Please read on!


What's New


New data types include the following:

  • OGC GeoPackage (.gpkg)
  • Mobile map package (.mmpk


Processing templates - Given that multiple processing templates are predetermined on the server-side of an image service, after adding the data, you can switch from one template to another for a different renderer or raster function chain. 


Freehand drawing - Support of freehand mode allows you to create lines and polygons that follow the movement of your pointer. Enable freehand mode by clicking while pressing Alt.


Elevation exaggeration - The Elevation Exaggeration user interface has been redesigned to visualize the landscape on the globe. The maximum value is increased to 100 on the scale bar. This maximum value of exaggeration can be configured to 1000 in the ArcGIS Earth configuration file if needed.




Pop-up resize - Pop-up size mode can be switched from Fixed to Auto Resizing in the ArcGIS Earth configuration file.


Support overall KML layer transparency - The KML layer transparency can be adjusted in the KML layer Properties panel at the parent node. 


Customize layer icons in the table of contents - Layer icons in the table of contents can now be customized at two levels: I. per layer/folder type, and II.


Sign in using a browser - Sign in using a browser is available as an option for signing into ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise portal. It can also be set as the default option for sign-in.



Block new portal connections A new administrator parameter, disableAddPortal, has been added in the ArcGIS Earth configuration file to allow disabling new ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise portal connections in Portal Manager.


Known Limitation





Batch geocoding is not available when the geocoding server is not federated with portal.

Raster layer

The blue to red color ramp is not honored if a raster layer is of scientific data source type.

Raster layer

Legend info is missing for local raster layer.


Windows display is not the same between two monitors when they have different DPI.

Time slider

'Move by step' in time based animation fails to display consistently while viewing through time slider.
