Why ArcBruTile is developed:


Because ArcGIS, one of the most popular desktop GIS program around, lacks support for non-ESRI tile services (TMS, WMS-C, WMTS), especially the increasingly popular OpenStreetMap maps. And because we're bored searching for the always slow or lost or broken disk/service with actual map reference data :-)
ArcBruTile also solves the projections problem: all tiles are transformed on the fly to the desired projection if needed. ArcBruTile makes it very easy to combine data
with different projections.
