How do you find out the date of collection for basemap imagery in Pro? Bonus: is there a way to do it via ArcGIS Online, too?
Tried Explore tool, looked through metadata and just can't seem to find it.
Try this for online: http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=c1c2090ed8594e0193194b750d0d5f83
Currently, no way to do this in Pro. It would be worth logging an enhancement or equivalency issue with technical support.
In AGOL, you simply add the imagery basemap as a new layer to your map (Search For Layers->"World imagery"). When you click the map, the infoWindow will tell you the acquisition date, source, etc of the imagery.
This doesn't work for me in the latest version of ArcGIS pro. The popoup window or the metatadata does not include the date field that you can get using the Identify Tool in ArcMap.
I think that this is going to be worked on for ArcGIS Pro 2.5 (so not the release next week, but after that).
Thanks for the reply, I did just get an email from an ESRI developer confirming that this capability will be coming in the 2.5 release as well.
Seems that this functionality is still not available at 2.5
Looks that way to me as well I don't understand why this functionality is so hard to add as it already exists in ArcMap.
Hi guys. Sorry that it took a bit to get this in - it was part of a larger project about how Pro handles sublayers of services, but we do see it in 2.6 (next release of ArcGIS Pro).
This article provides a work-around for now... thought I'd share it here:
Thanks for sharing this, it will be useful immediately!
