Commonwealth Map Base Updated
The newly updated Commonwealth Map base now includes all KyFromAbove Imagery from the 2012 acquisition period. Improved symbology and labeling enhances the base and the imagery layers are now visible 2 levels higher than before. Like the new cached street base, this service was also designed to work well in conjunction with Esri's base maps.

DGI Releases New Cached Street Base for the Commonwealth
Kentucky's GIS users now have another base map option that focuses primarily on streets, airports, rail, and hydrography. The service was designed to work well with Esri's base maps and includes all the layers in the Commonwealth Map Base with the exception of imagery layers. The new base map can be accessed within the Commonwealth Map by selecting the "KyStreets" button in the base map switcher at the top of the viewer.
