Hello!

I have a shapefile of my area through which I visualize the land use in my area in Google Earth (see image). I intend to download that imagery and use it as a base layer to carry out further analysis in ArcMap. How can I save the Google Earth image so that it is clipped to the shapefile area and is already georeferenced. I see the coordinates of the position after importing the shapefile boundary to Google Earth. Now I just want to import it back to  ArcMap along with the Google Earth image. I hope  you understand what I am trying to say. If you do, please suggest a way. Thank you!

Hi, both ArcGIS Pro or ArcMap (with ArcGIS online credentials) will allow you to bring in imagery from many sources by changing basemaps. But I think this technical article might be helpful. https://support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000023334 Sorry for the delay in responding! Happy New Year! Kristal

Thank you so much for your reply. I was trying to avoid the clipping and
georeferencing method. This is certainly helpful. And a very happy new year
to you as well!
