This post covers the basics of symbol rotation in ArcGIS Online web maps. Symbol rotation is easy, and is perfect for "direction focused" point features. These include cameras, travel direction, wind direction, and much more.

Using these techniques, you can come up with all sort of creative applications of stacked symbols and rotation.
