I just started learning about ArcGIS.
I am building a webapp (django) and we need map images (jpg) of a given location (lat,long), using various basemaps (topology, satellite, etc). Later I need to layer shapefiles on top.
The Google static image API does exactly what I need. Unfortunately, they only provide 3 different types of maps and we need other basemaps.
ArcGIS has all the basemaps we need. But, how do I use it?
Basically, I need a URL that implements the following function: "Generate a .jpg of map range lat,long to lat1,long1 using Basemap XYZ (and layer shapefile A.shp on top)", where I can tell it what lat,long, XYZ and A.shp I want. Does such a thing exist? in arcgis, or anywhere? Paid services are OK.
