I am using ArcMap to create backgrounds for a book of poetry where the backgrounds of poems are satellite imagery. I would like to have a section of my map be from a BW image and another from a color image, but I can only figure out how to view one basemap at a time. Would I be able to dictate boundary between two the layers.
To do this I would use the Swipe Layer tool:
The Swipe Layer tool is used to interactively reveal layers beneath the layer being swiped. This tool makes it easy to see what is underneath a particular layer without having to turn it off in the table of contents.
You can access the Swipe Layer tool from within the Image Analysis window, where you interact with raster layers, and you can also access it from the Effects toolbar, where you can interact with any layer in the table of contents.
