When using ArcGis Pro, when using the imagery Basemap the quality is very low. Location is Cortland, Ohio 44410 USA. Is there a way to improve this quality? Intent is to be used in layout for print as Architectural D 24” x 36”.

Hi Kyle,

I suggest using Bing Maps as an alternative. The quality of Bing Maps on your location is quite good. 

You will need to get a Bing Maps Key to use Bing Maps as the basemap. 

There's a technical support article detailing the steps required to get Bing Maps: FAQ: Is it possible to add Bing basemaps to ArcGIS Pro?

And how to use Bing Maps in ArcGIS Pro: Use Bing Maps

I am not sure whether you want to use the map for business purpose, below are the Terms of Use of Bing Maps:
