Basemap updates for Canada – May 2018

The ArcGIS Online imagery basemap was updated with a number of Canadian contributions in May.

Six contributors, which include two from Ontario and four from British Columbia, had their latest imagery content published to the imagery basemap on ArcGIS Online. These include:

  • Courtenay, BC
  • Township of Langley, BC
  • Oak Bay, BC
  • Victoria, BC
  • Leeds & Grenville, ON
  • Sudbury, ON

We have guests: older imagery (on the left) is replaced with 10 cm imagery from 2017 (on the right) supplied by the City of Victoria.
