ArcGIS Online

2 Posts authored by: LTerpstra-esristaff Employee

On the evening of March 19, we plan to update ArcGIS Online. Here are five new capabilities to anticipate:

 

  • Encourage viewers to explore your data using the upcoming Interactive Legend configurable app. This app enables viewers to not only read the legend but also touch the data. Giving viewers the opportunity to turn layers on and off, highlight, and filter data through the map legend helps them recognize what is occurring in the map.

  • When searching for items, you will notice a new location filter. Specify a place or region of interest and see only items for that location. This filter works by referencing map extents (geographic boundaries for items). Also, item search will be more efficient and flexible. For example, suggested and partial word searches will be supported for titles.

  • Bring your own or publicly shared maps, layers, or apps together using the upcoming Category Gallery configurable app. This app is an excellent way to organize your items into categories and allow viewers to interact with your items. The categories give viewers the flexibility to filter and find relevant items.

  • You will be able to create feature layers from photos that contain location data. Simply upload a file of JPEG photos with geotags and publish as a hosted feature layer. Use the layer in your maps and apps.

 

  • Group owners and managers will be able to help users quickly find what they are looking for by specifying the type of items (such as apps or maps) that display by default on the group's content and overview tabs.

 

Please note that all planned updates are subject to change. A comprehensive list of implemented changes will be provided in our What's New email, blog, and documentation. Visit the ArcGIS blog to learn more about what's coming and new.

ArcGIS Online User Types

User Types

Esri evolved named user levels into User Types to provide additional flexibility when licensing ArcGIS Online. There are five User Types: Creator (formerly Level 2), Viewer (formerly Level 1), Field Worker, Editor, and GIS Professional.

Arcade in Pop Up

Enhanced Arcade Expressions in Pop-ups

Perform calculations and bring information from overlapping layers into one pop-up using Arcade. Create cohesive pop-ups that display information about fields that have intersecting locations rather than having your users toggle through multiple pop ups in a single location.

3D Slice Tool

3D Slice Tool

Reveal hidden data in building interiors or underground using the new Slice tool. This tool lets you inspect features in a building or display geological data that is under the earth's surface.

 

Vector Basemap Italian

Vector Basemaps: New Languages 

In addition to Chinese (traditional), English, French, German, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish, the Esri Vector Basemaps are now available in Arabic, Chinese (simplified), Italian, Korean, Polish, and Portuguese (Brazilian).

 

Compare Configurable App

New Configurable App

Use Compare, the newest configurable app, to compare your maps or scenes. The two views can be linked to synchronize their extents, legends, and pop-ups.

 

Routing

Reduced Price: Simple Routing

The cost of simple routing was reduced to 0.005 credits per route. For example, generating 10,000 routes only costs 50 credits.
