ESRI Data & Maps is a set of map data at many scales of geography. This collection of data provides a useful starting place for your applications, and in many cases it may be all the data you need to make the map that helps you present your information in a new way.

Available Themes:

For each geography included, the significant basemap layers are boundaries, cities, rivers, and roads. This basemap information is available for Canada, Europe, Mexico, the United States and the World. In addition, where possible, demographic data is provided for subnational boundaries such as states, counties, or their equivalents. The ArcGIS StreetMap USA disks contain the ArcGIS StreetMap USA data sets and the U.S. data sets needed to support the ArcGIS StreetMap USA extension. ESRI Data is available for 2016, 2012, 2010, 2008, 2006 and 2004.
