A small update to the World Imagery basemap occurred this week. Three communities in the Vancouver area of British Columbia have published their data . They include the District of North Vancouver (2009 imagery), Vancouver (2011) and Coquitlam (2012). All communities provided 10 cm resolution imagery, visible at 1:36,112 to 1:1,128.
