Basemap from multiple services

Hi,

Is there a way to setup a basemap that combines two services? Specifically, I'd like to combine a set of tiles generated for a specific area with the existing Esri topographic basemap and have that available as a basemap option in the organizational site.

I uploaded the tiles (using the standard AGOL tiling scheme):

http://apps4halifax.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=c844ca39d4ef4dc5bef1e53437033111

Authored a "community basemap" web map that combines the tiles with the default AGOL basemap:

http://apps4halifax.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=dd99b6f379094ad7bda80739369f624c

and added the web map to the Basemaps group, and it shows up in the list of basemaps for the organization. The problem is that when a user creates a new new map with the "community basemap", only the default topographic basemap is shown, not the custom tiles that are in the web map.

Any suggestions for a work around?

If not, I'll add this to the ideas site. I can see uses for it outside of the topographic basemap, such as augmenting the Esri imagery basemap with more detailed or up-to-date imagery to create a custom basemap.

TIA,

Greg
