It’s time to clear your cache. Yesterday we added over 50 terabytes of new imagery from DigitalGlobe to the World Imagery map. This release includes 30cm imagery for the continental United States and 60cm imagery for large parts of Western Europe. This greatly expands the coverage and detail in these two regions. Previously, there was submeter resolution data mostly in urban areas. Now the map includes submeter resolution coverage consistently throughout the regions where imagery was added.
30cm DigitalGlobe imagery for Charlotte, North Carolina
30cm DigitalGlobe imagery for Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
30cm DigitalGlobe imagery for Houston, Texas
30cm DigitalGlobe imagery for San Francisco, California
60cm DigitalGlobe imagery for Brussels, Belgium
60cm DigitalGlobe imagery for Lisbon, Portugal
60cm DigitalGlobe imagery for Rome, Italy
Here are maps showing the updated DigitalGlobe coverage.

This is the first of several planned releases. Over the coming months we’ll be adding more DigitalGlobe imagery in Europe and many other parts of the world.
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.
