National Geographic and Esri Team on Map for Web and Mobile

by Matt Ball on December 15, 2011

Today, National Geographic and Esri reveal a new multi-scale general reference map of the world for use by the public and for education purposes. The map uses the familiar cartographic styling that National Geographic developed over more than 100 years of map making, and offers multiple scales of viewing from global all the way down to 1:144k scale for the globe and 1:9k scale for North America.

Through ArcGIS online hosting, users are able to use this map for the creation of their own maps, by adding layers to this basemap or creating their own overlay layers.

The map uses data from a variety of leading data providers, including DeLorme, NAVTEQ, UNEP-WCMC, NASA, ESA, USGS, and others.
