High-resolution imagery for South America, Australia, New Zealand, and Afghanistan added to ArcGIS Online World Imagery Map

We’re happy to report that the final batch of the large set (up to 50 million square kilometers) of high-resolution imagery to be added to the World Imagery map service is fully processed and published to ArcGIS Online. The World Imagery map was recently updated to include expanded coverage of 1m resolution GeoEye IKONOS imagery for parts of Afghanistan, Australia, New Zealand, and South America. This represents the final update of the large set of IKONOS imagery we started deploying in January. Below are some sample images.

Metadata: This service is metadata-enabled. With the Identify tool in ArcMap or the ArcGIS Online Content Viewer, you can see the resolution, collection date, and source of the imagery at the location you click. The metadata applies only to the best available imagery at that location. You may need to zoom in to view the best available imagery.

The service was updated on the following servers: services.arcgisonline.com and server.arcgisonline.com. If you have previously used the World Imagery map, you may need to clear your cache in order to see the updates.
