The ArcGIS core team released a helpful little patch to improve the usability of tiled internet map services in ArcGIS Desktop. Since many of you are consuming online map services, such as Bing Maps Aerial, or using the Business Analyst Web.mxd (which loads the ArcGIS Online World StreetMap service by default), this patch is quite relevant to improve the request responsiveness.

In situations where these requests take longer to respond, the requesting application can crash. This patch ensures that the situation which caused the crash is avoided, and ensures that map tiles returning after longer timeouts will still be properly handled.
Let me explain a couple of these changes and tell you how you can accomplish similar functionality elsewhere in ArcGIS… Continue reading
