Improved User Experience with the Updated ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World Website

Blog Post created by TGrant-esristaff Employee on Feb 2, 2018

The ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World website has been redesigned to make learning, using, and contributing to the Living Atlas effortless. In addition to improving search, three new pages were added to the website: Browse, Apps, and Blogs. The Browse page now houses the content discovery tools including search, browse, and filter that were formerly on the Home page. This frees up the Home page to highlight new content and provide an introduction to the Living Atlas. The Apps page was created to highlight Apps in the Living Atlas. A Blogs page was also added to conveniently deliver ArcGIS blogs about the Living Atlas to the website. The Benefits, My Contributions, and My Favoritespages are still an integral part of the website. Here are more details about the new and updated pages:
