Organizations use imagery daily for visualization and reference purposes, but visualization is only one of the many ways that imagery can deliver value. Watch our latest agriculture and forestry joint webinar focusing on how imagery can provide greater insight and influence better decision-making.

Featured Questions and Answers

  1. What's the difference between imagery categorized as "basemap" vs others? I've always thought of all imagery as basemap.
    Basemaps typically serve as a reference map on which you overlay data from layers and visualize geographic information. An individual basemap can be made of multiple features, raster, or web layers. Basemaps are the foundation for your maps and provide context for your work.
    Other types of remotely sensed products may be product of analysis and could be used as overlay data to enhance your "Basemaps".

  2. What is the path to snag the satellite imagery? Currently go to the ESA and download sentinel2 data from them...nice that it is already into ESRI...what is the link within ArcGIS desktop?
    You can browse to Living Atlas content from directly in ArcGIS Pro. From the Catalog pane in ArcGIS Pro you can select Living Atlas connecting you directly. Alternatively, you can go directly to the Living Atlas of the World website and search for say for example ‘sentinel-2’.

  3. Is ArcGIS Online services available with single advance desktop license?
    If your license is current on software maintenance, you will have access to ArcGIS Online and the ArcGIS Living Atlas!

  4. How do I get access to the analysis tools you showed in the map viewer during the imagery analysis?Before members of your organization can create and analyze imagery layers, they must be granted the necessary user type, role, and license. An ArcGIS Online administrator can manage the user types and roles and assign licenses for organization.
    Once these protocols are in place the user will have access to the analysis tools.

  5. Does the use of all of these online tools incur credit usage?
    Image hosting and analysis in ArcGIS Online does consume credits. The usage rate will depend on a number of factors like the amount of data, the extent, and the type of analysis being performed. For image analysis tools, there is an option to estimate the number of credits used in the operation. Please refer to this help documentation on credit consumption in ArcGIS Online.

  6. Can we download the Esri landcover 2020 for selected ( small) areas?
    Yes, you can download individual GeoTiffs for select areas. Use the
    Esri 2020 Land Cover Downloader to get started.

  7. Can you access the Living Atlas and do analysis with ArcPy? (in ArcPro)
    You sure can. All Living Atlas layers can be accessed programmatically through unique REST URL found on each item’s overview page. ArcGIS Notebooks can also be used through your Enterprise, ArcGIS Pro, or ArcGIS Online to access and work with content in the Living Atlas.
