This is a last reminder that complimentary use of Microsoft’s Bing Maps with ArcGIS will end on December 31, 2013.
To continue using Bing Maps with ArcGIS after December 31, you will need to obtain your own Bing Maps key directly from Microsoft and then input the key into your ArcGIS products. We recommend that you start the process of obtaining a Bing Maps key right away to avoid any disruption.
Once you obtain a key from Microsoft, you will be able to use Bing Maps in your web and mobile applications as well as ArcGIS for Desktop, ArcGIS APIs and SDKs, and ArcGIS Online.

Try the ArcGIS Online World Imagery Map. It’s a Great Alternative!
The complimentary World Imagery Map is updated frequently and provides 1-meter scale or better satellite imagery for many parts of the world. It includes recent and detailed aerial imagery from DigitalGlobe at 30 cm for the continental United States down to 1:1,000 scale; 60 cm imagery for large parts of Western Europe down to 1:2,000 scale; and 1 m imagery for other areas in the world.
Try Other Free ArcGIS Online Basemaps
In addition to the World Imagery Map, ArcGIS Online gives you access to a number of different basemaps that you can use in your projects. The World Street Map, World Topographic Map, Light Gray Canvas Map, and National Geographic World Map provide a range of cartographic options to meet your needs.
