I run the supervised classification of Landsat scene from 2014 to identify forest disturbances.

I would like to assess the accuracy of my classification through visual identification of stratified random samplings: however, I do not have aerial photography from this year. I wanted to use historical GoogleEarth (GE) imagery (from 2014) to assess my accuracy.

Is there a way to open the Historical GE imagery in ArcGIS 10.1? I have found that no, but maybe there are some updates.


When asked:

if Arc2Earth would allow me to bring historical Google imagery (such as 2007) into ArcMap?

its developer, Brian Flood, replied on 7 Oct 2015:

unfortunately no. if Google ever adds historical imagery to the Google Maps API, we will definitely add it to Arc2Earth
