The ArcGIS Online team recently updated the following map services with updated coverage in North America:
- World Street Map
- World Transportation
- World Boundaries and Places
- World Boundaries and Places Alternate
The latest update has a number of improvements from the previous edition. With these updates, map labels are designed to be more legible. Certain feature labels appear sooner, at smaller scales than previously displayed allowing for more functionality at more scales. Additional content displays more hamlet/neighborhood names at large scales. These updated maps provide more detail in city parks, golf courses, sports complexes, and airports/runways. The map also displays more school labels.
Local roads and county boundaries are now displayed one zoom level sooner providing more detail and reference information to the user at smaller scales than previous editions. Hydro content in the United States is more detailed. Content is also expanded in Canada to display more roads and more hydrographic features.
The following maps give you an idea of the coverage for North America:
