Search for Symbols by Tag in Web Map Viewer

    Problem: When you want to find a symbol in the ArcGIS Web Map Viewer, you need to know which symbol set to choose and then scroll to the symbol you need. This is highly inefficient and almost unusable when trying to create standard practice. 

     

    Here are the steps I need to share to help someone... 

    1) Change Style

    2) Choose an attribute to show

    3) Types (Unique Symbols)

    4) OPTIONS

    5) Click on the type you want to change the symbol for

    6) Choose "Public Safety" from the drop-down

    7) Scroll down.... uh... about 4 mouse wheels,

    8) See the red shelter icon, choose that one for closed.

    9) Repeat steps 5 - 8 several times

     

    If you really want to see how painful this is... search for the campground or trailhead symbol in the National Park Service "pack". 

     

     

    Solution: In the web map viewer (or I guess whatever the rebuild will be) please just make symbols "Searchable" by tags at Step 6.
