The map features 0.5m resolution imagery in the continental United States and parts of Western Europe from Maxar. This map features additional Maxar submeter imagery in many parts of the world. In other parts of the world, the GIS User Community has contributed imagery at different resolutions. In select communities, very high-resolution imagery (down to 0.03m) is available down to ~1:280 scale.

For more information, see Esri World Imagery on the Esri website.
