Hi all,

Wondering if anyone has successfully used the "ESRI World Imagery" map service with the ENVI ArcGIS toolbox?   Hoping to run classified and unclassified analysis on imagery in Europe, and the World Imagery service has quite a bit of High res imagery.  

I know the ENVI platform on it's own can connect to Rest endpoints, but the World Imagery service is not available outside the Arc platform as far as I can tell.  So I am trying to find an answer if it is possible with the toolbox in Arc?  Have called ESRI support and unfortunately, most of the reps don't even know what ENVI is, nor the fact that a toolbox is available directly in the ArcGIS platform.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!
