Projections in ArcGIS Online

Idea created by jamccomb on Feb 1, 2013

    It would be very helpful if some projections other than Web Mercator were available in ArcGIS Online.

    I do a lot of work in the Arctic where Web Mercator is anything but conformal. Also it is not possible to have any kind of polar map.

    In a similar vein it would be nice to have some kind of more equal area projection available for maps of the world. Thematic maps using the Web Mercator projection misrepresent reality.
