Hi all, i'm a GIS newbie, so some of my terminology probably will be incorrect, but hopefully I can get across what I'm asking...
I'm doing a "Fire Service Maps" project with the express intent of printing a Run Book. I've gone through some trial runs and the results with the basemaps I have available are less than impressive for the purpose.
I'm searching for a plain black-and-white basemap. Everything is either greyscale or full color. When printed on a black-and-white printer, the background shading makes the important elements hard to see (not to mention quite a waste of toner- we'll probably end up printing 25 or so books at 125 pages each!).
So on my quest I have found an ESRI basemap that seems like it would be PERFECT for my task. However, here is its intended use paragraph:
This map is designed to be used as the base map in a web map. You can add this layer to a web map and save as your own map. If you would like to use this map as a reference overlay layer, refer to the transparent tile layer, Black and White Map (transparent).
The link for the page for this basemap: Black and White Map
I did connect to th arcgis portal for basemaps, but I can't find that one listed anywhere.
So the bottom-line question is, is there a way to use that "Black and White Map" as a basemap in my ArcGIS project?
