You can add 3D basemaps to your globe document, which are accessed from ArcGIS Online. Basemaps change the way you want the overall globe to appear and may consist of one or many layers. The gallery of basemaps includes the key ArcGIS Online basemaps, such as World Imagery, World Streets, and World Topographic Map, as well as the Bing Maps services and many more. These basemaps all require an Internet connection for them to be drawn in your globe. This makes it quick and easy to immediately add great basemaps to your view without having to download or manage the data locally. The content in these services is frequently updated, too.
Note that none of the online basemaps will work in ArcScene.
To add an online basemap in ArcGlobe, do the following:
- Click the Add Data drop-down arrow and click Add Basemap .
- Select the basemap and click Add.
