I'm using ArcGIS Earth 1.8. The Esri basemaps seem to be labelling some surface water features incorrectly. The Wolf River in Wisconsin, USA is labelled as the Rat River, which is a tributary to the Wolf River.

Thank you for reaching out and for bringing this to our attention. We understand the importance of accurate mapping and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

As a member of the ArcGIS Earth team, I'd like to clarify that while our application utilizes Esri basemaps, the creation and updates of these maps are handled by a separate team dedicated to ensuring the accuracy and relevance of the mapping data. Occasionally, issues like the one you've mentioned might occur due to the complex nature of map-making and updating processes.

We sincerely appreciate your understanding in this matter. Meanwhile, if you require alternative imagery for your project, we recommend exploring other basemap options available. For example, you might find this resource useful: Topographic
