Use of Bing Maps with ArcGIS
Once you obtain a key from Microsoft, you will be able to use Bing Maps in your Web and mobile applications as well as on ArcGIS for Server, ArcGIS web APIs, all ArcGIS mobile software development kits (SDK), and ArcGIS Online.

ArcGIS for Desktop will be affected in different ways, depending on the version you have:

  • ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop has a built-in capability to add a Bing Maps key.
  • ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop users can install a patch to use their Bing Maps key.
  • ArcGIS 10.0 for Desktop users can install a patch to use their Bing Maps key.
  • ArcGIS Desktop 9.3.1 will no longer support the use of Bing Maps. To continue using Bing Maps, you will have to upgrade to a newer version of ArcGIS for Desktop.

Have You Tried the ArcGIS Online World Imagery Map? It’s a Great Alternative!
The complimentary World Imagery Map is updated frequently and provides 1-meter scale or better satellite imagery for many parts of the world. It includes recent and detailed aerial imagery from DigitalGlobe at 30 cm for the continental United States down to 1:1,000 scale, 60 cm imagery for large parts of Western Europe down to 1:2,000 scale, and 1 m imagery for other areas in the world.

Try Other Free ArcGIS Online Basemaps
In addition to the World Imagery Map, ArcGIS Online gives you access to a number of different basemaps that you can use in your projects. The World Street Map, World Topographic Map, Light Gray Canvas Map, and National Geographic World Map provide a range of cartographic options to meet your needs.
