Map services to provide USGS US Topo maps in ArcGIS
February 07 2011 |
Are there available map services to provide US Topo maps as base layer? The USGS provides only GeoPDF downloads that need to be converted and we lose resolution of the data.
Mapping Center Answer:
You can do this one of two ways. In ArcGIS 10, when you click the Add Data button, you have two new options -- to Add a Basemap and to Add Data from ArcGIS Online. One of the options selections when you choose to Add a Basemap is USA Topo Maps. If you choose to Add Data from ArcGIS Online, then just type either "topo" or "USGS" into the search box and you will see a number of basemaps to select from.
