    The plethora of services and data available on ArcGIS online is brilliant but it lacks one thing - full integration with ArcGIS desktop. The services symbology cannot be changed and many basic desktop tools such as attribute and location selections cannot be used in conjunction with the services. In addition, the services cannot be exported to a feature dataset or shapefile to be run locally.

    I would normally find the dataset I need (U.S. Census data) over the web and customize it to meet my needs however with the Federal government shutdown I am unable to do so.
