I am trying to figure out the coastline changes between past and present using map of a Japanese web page, something like Google Earth.

Is there any way I can import the basemap of an online web page into ArcMap so that I can trace the coastline to compare if there are any changes between past and present?

  • What is the website so we can see it if it has English version that we may help you. – PROBERT May 11 '18 at 14:43

ArcBruTile is useful to connect to a standard tile server XYZ/TMS:

ArcBruTile displays a collection of maps in ArcGIS Pro 2.0 and ArcMap 10.0 - 10.6

  • Thank you very much. Is there any chance I can use this on QGIS? I just converted to QGIS recently – HBoo Wee Aug 29 '18 at 7:13
