I require download a base map to display it in another program that supports .kmz files so when I zoom the map retains this property for a specific country and not as a stationary image. The program from which I want to display the basemap is The Integrated Data Viewer (IDV) from Unidata, this is a Java-based software framework for analyzing and visualizing geoscience data. This software has some basemaps including but on a global scale and lose resolution to enlarge the image. I tried to export a map from http://services.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/World_Imagery/MapServer/export?bbox=, but can not zoom. Thank you for your help.

Hi Lizeth,

Have you considered using a WMS (Web mapping service) in IDV as opposed to downloading a basemap? It looks like IDV can utilize WMS, if you can obtain the proper URL to that particular WMS.

Please note that the GeoNet Help​ discussion space is for questions about GeoNet itself, not specific applications. I'm moving to the GIS​ space, but if you think it should reside somewhere else, please feel free to move it there. Consult the GeoNet Community Structure for more information.

Hi Lizeth Rodríguez​,

I would suggest unmarking my post as the answer to your question. That might discourage someone from providing you with a real answer.
