A big ArcGIS Online imagery updates features world-wide updates as well as some local Canadian content
ArcGIS Online benefited from a major update to its imagery content this week, including updates from six of our Canadian contributors. The updates should be immediately noticeable to users as they include a world-wide imagery refresh of the smallest scales from 1:591,657,528 to 1:577,791. The Esri blog has details about many of the other world-wide updates but I would like to point out the Canadian updates (from east to west) here:
Rothesay (population 11,947) in the southern part of New Brunswick, provided 10 cm imagery from 2012

Rimouski (population 46,860) along the south shore of the St. Lawrence in Quebec, provided 15 cm imagery from 2011
Figure 2: Rimouski, QC on the shores of the St. Lawrence (1:9,028)
Rouyn-Noranda (population 41,012), also in Quebec but farther north and west, provided 20 cm imagery from 2013

London (population 366,151) in southern Ontario, provided 15 cm imagery from 2013

All of the contributions listed above are visible from 1:1,128 to 1:36,112.
In addition, the following is visible only at 1:1,128 and 1:2,257:
- The West Parry Sound Geography Network in Ontario covers the eastern shore of Georgian Bay and provided 50 cm imagery from 2004
- Vernon (population 38,150) in the interior of British Columbia, provided 15 cm imagery from 2010
