I am contemplating creating a local caches from the standard ArcGIS Online Basemaps; streetmap, imagery and topo. I need to do this because the environment the web application will be hosted is DOES NOT have live connection to the internet. I have a couple of questions before I proceed:
Would creating a local tile cache from ArcGIS Online Basemaps violate any usage terms. Without doing any research (yet), I am guessing the local tile cache would be subject to the same usage restrictions of the ArcGIS Online basemaps?
Assuming this is legal, is there anything in place that would prevent me from doing so? Does anyone know if the ArcGIS Online servers start blocking an IP after n tile requests in n time period?
Any other thoughts,comments,suggestions welcome.
