Select tool is basic tool that missing in ArcGIS Online map viewer.
There is no way to select graphically multiple features on the map.
Like in Operations Dashboard it will be great to have tool to select features graphically on the map.
Thanks for your feedback. Can you provide some more examples of how you would use the selection in the map viewer? Would it be to view the associated records in a table, to edit, for analysis or to highlight specific areas?
It would be fantastic to be able to filter related tables and select associated features in the map viewer.
However, the ability to select multiple features without related records would also be a huge step forward. For example, I have a web map of electricity network with information about it's status, materials, repair records and so on. I need to filter and select only these parts of the network that is not working (query > status equals not working).
Here's an example... we have a code compliance officer who writes down addresses where grass needs to be mowed as she drives through a neighborhood. In the office, she would like to use our mapping portal (ArcGIS Online, Web AppBuilder) to select the individual parcels and then export the attribute table for the selected parcels in order to use the data in a mail merge to notify the owner that they are not in compliance with our ordinance. If the parcels were highlighted she could also make a map showing the locations to follow up with later to ensure the owner has complied.
In a related ArcGIS Online wish list item... after a parcel is selected on the map, we would like to generate a buffer around the parcel and export the selected records. Sometimes this buffer tool is developed alongside the select tool so I thought I would mention it here.
Our requirement is similar to the scenario that Kerik suggested. In this
case it is a forestry application. Basically we are doing a visual
inspection. We want to select graphically specific polygons and assign a
treatment attribute value. The interactive selection should allow for
selecting and de-selecting. Hold the Shift key down and select the polys
or deselect from a selection set.
Thanks for submitting this idea Guy Nizry.This functionality was implemented in the June 2016 release of ArcGIS Online. The Select Tool is now an available widget in Web App Builder for ArcGIS. Please see the following documentation for more information on this particular functionality: http://doc.arcgis.com/en/web-appbuilder/create-apps/widget-select.htm and http://solutions.arcgis.com/local-government/help/crowdsource-manager/
Thank you very much! It is so cool!
Thank you ESRI for implementing this idea. hope to see it soon in ArcGIS.com map viewer.
This tool is needed at arcgis online map viewer.
There are analysis capabilities at the site but I cannot select the features to analyze...
