Go to View -> Layout, then go to Insert -> Dynamic Text -> Service Layer Credits. You should then be able to move the credits to wherever you want. (Or completely remove them)

Another option is to change the text color to "No Color", instead of moving the text box off the preview pane. This is useful when performing a graphic export and selecting the "Clip Output to Graphics Extent". Otherwise, the text box located off the preview pane will be included in the export.

Look to the lower left of your computer's Taskbar, you should see a small globe icon. Right-click & "Test Connection Now". You will connect to ArcGIS Online and the ability to add Basemaps is restored. The unfortunate greyness is from not being auto-connected to ArcGIS Online. In the past just being online was good enough to pull a service, now one ...

The API Reference for the Map Class says the following: The following are valid options: "streets" , "satellite" , "hybrid", "topo", "gray", "oceans", "national-geographic", "osm". As of version 3.3 You should instead, just define a new ArcGIS Tiled Map Service Layer and use it as follows: var baseMapLayer = new esri.layers....

I made a video on how to do it at YouTube Go to View -> Layout, then go to Insert -> Dynamic Text -> Service Layer Credits. You should then be able to move the credits to wherever you want. You can't delete it. If you do it will come back. So you need to move it off the preview pane.

Complimentary use of Bing maps is currently being phased out by Esri, and after December 31st, you'll no longer be able to use it at all. Right now, I think the only way you can use Bing as your basemap is if you have it in a map document that was saved before the cut-off date. See the blog post, Bing Maps Use in ArcMap Has Changed. There are still free ...

Essentially you can't. All of the formatting and display of basemap layers is pre-set by the basemap creator (in this case Esri). They've gone through and designed the layer to look a particular way at a given scale and you can't alter this. You could create your own annotations to sit on top of the map (using either the labeled or unlabeled version) that ...

After you make it dynamic text, send it to the back (right-click the text element, click Order > Send to Back). It will be behind the rest of your layout, so it won't show up in any exported or printed maps.

I just found this ArcGIS Forum Discussion that suggests that you should be able to but you will need to follow the advice therein about how to cite and where to find Terms of Use for the particular basemap(s) you are intending to use.

Map has the property getLevel which you can use to find the zoom level. <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1,user-scalable=no"/> <title>Simple Map</title> <link rel="...

You can do this with the Identify tool, just use it to click the World Imagery layer and it will tell you a few things about the imagery, including the date it was collected:

If your organization have obtained ArcGIS Server license, then you have access to Data and Maps for Server, which includes map cache for several Esri basemaps that you can use offline including, but not limited to, World Imagery. The World Imagery will only be available down to the 1:1million scale, and must be served by an ArcGIS server instance, so won't ...

I found this page about the ESRI World Imagery basemap with links to a Summary and Terms of Use. The Summary says "You May: Include screen captures or a printed or plotted maps in the following ways... In academic publications (research journals, textbooks, etc.)"

To reproduce the symptoms that you describe (i.e. Add Basemap and Add Data From ArcGIS Online both disabled), I unplugged the internet cable from my laptop and started the ArcMap application of ArcGIS 10.2.2 for Desktop. The Sign In and ArcGIS Online options under File in the Main Menu were also greyed out. To restore all of the above options I plugged ...

I would use the clip to shape option in the data frame properties. Have two copies of your basemap in the Data Frame one with no transparency which you clip to your town border using the option below. Then make your second one transparent and sitting below the first basemap and exclude it from the clip using the Exclude Layers button. Below is a very ...

tl;dr; The performance of all basemaps from arcgis.com inside ArcMap will pretty much be equal. The basemaps you reference all come from the same cloud infrastructure and show the same thing: static images. (png, jpg, etc). In short, the only potential performance difference you may encounter is how long it takes to download the cached tiles of one ...

For arcgis javascript SDK version 3.x you can use esri/basemaps class to declare and register custom basemaps and use with your map: https://developers.arcgis.com/javascript/3/jsapi/esri.basemaps-amd.html Declare and register custom basemap: Basemaps.mybasemap = { title: 'My custom basemap', thumbnailUrl: 'https://js.arcgis.com/3.22/esri/images/basemap/...

I suppose you mean extracting an image from a basemap raster (flux). You can add your basemap, then go to File/Export Map... In the dialog box, set the dpi you need, and for example for JPG files, don't forget to check the "Write World File" box. Then you insert your exported image. Next step if you really need to CLIP by for example a polygone boundary, ...

It depends where you are in the world. The World Imagery basemap is assembled from imagery from many different sources, shot at different times and with different post-processing. I don't think there is a way to find out exactly how far off it is without comparing it against some other data which has a known accuracy. If you use the Identify tool on the ...

These basemap are provided with ESRI, and developed in their own window. You cannot add basemap directly in this basemap window. However you can integrate other basemaps as services in the ArcMap. You may use Portable Basemap Server, to create services for basemap and then add them in ArcMap.

I think that you'll be best served to create a manual list of the basemaps, including the order, that you want displayed within the gallery. This ArcGIS thread gives quite a bit of detail into what you might be looking for and some code in how to do it.

Wrap around 180 means that it will continue to pan as you move along the longitude. See fiddle for an example (it is true by default). I've never seen ESRI do the repeat map thing, I don't believe it is possible. If you want that feel you could limit the zoom levels so they can't go out beyond a certain zoom level using LOD's in the map configuration

You are going to add the basemap gallery code to your existing. You will need to modify portions of your code in the index.html by adding the following HTML: <div id="basemapGallery"></div> in the spot you want the gallery to be located Then in the map.js file you will need to add the widget code by first adding dojo.require("esri.dijit....

This link demonstrates how MapBox can be added as a basemap in a webmap. As cbunn mentioned, save the webmap with just the basemap. Share the webmap with a group that will be used for basemaps. Then change the organisational basemaps to use that group as below (any groups that you have in your organisation will appear): When you select a group that is not ...

You can't, the Terms of Use don't allow this. There is a summary of the Terms of Use available. In particular, note: YOU MAY Use the basemap data offline in the following manner The data may only be taken offline using Esri Content Packages YOU MAY NOT Systematically harvest map tiles through any method ...

Yes, same for me when I updated to 2.2:

Coming from a remote area with slow and often spotty internet, I have found that it is necessary to set the dataframe coordinate system to WGS 1984 Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere) when using an ArcGIS Online basemap. Be warned - the basemap loads quickly, but it appears the measure tool does not give accurate measurements when using this coordinate system.

I might be a little late to this party, but I put together a couple of simple python scripts to download map tiles by extent. In my case, I hooked the scripts up as django management commands which wrote to a sqlite database. This first post is about tile urls for various map content providers: http://bcdcspatial.blogspot.com/2012/01/onlineoffline-mapping-...

The basemap defines the spatial reference of the map; changing the basemap and its spatial reference could cause unintended issues. Some possible alternatives are: Destroy and recreate the map with the new basemap and load any other layers. You would want to be sure you destroy all handlers and other objects before recreating the map to avoid memory leaks. ...
