Description: This worldwide street map presents highway-level data for the world. Street-level data includes the United States; much of Canada; Mexico; Europe; Japan; Australia and New Zealand; India; South America and Central America; Africa; and most of the Middle East. This comprehensive street map includes highways, major roads, minor roads, one-way arrow indicators, railways, water features, administrative boundaries, cities, parks, and landmarks overlaid on shaded relief imagery for added context. The map also includes building footprints for selected areas. Coverage is provided down to ~1:4k with ~1:1k and ~1:2k data available in select urban areas. Alignment of boundaries is a presentation of the feature provided by Esri data vendors and does not imply endorsement by Esri or any governing authority.

The street map was developed by Esri using Esri basemap data, Garmin basemap layers, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) elevation data, Intact Forest Landscape (IFL) data for the world; HERE data for Europe, Australia and New Zealand, North America, South America and Central America, Africa, India and most of the Middle East; OpenStreetMap contributors for select countries in Africa and the Pacific Islands; and select data from the GIS user community. A specific country list and documentation of Esri's process for including OSM data are in OSM Data Usage in Esri's ArcGIS Online Basemaps (PDF).
