Welcome to the Applications Prototype Lab’s new web demo page: https://apl.esri.com.

APL web demo landing page

Our new home page for web applications has an updated, fresh look that we hope is easier to navigate and explore. Discover demos by visually exploring the thumbnails and hovering over an item for more information or long-press on a touch screen device.


In the default Grid View, hover over a demo's name to get a short description. Hover over the thumbnail to view quick access linked to resources like a video, comments, source code, and other documentation. Click or tap the thumbnail to launch the application into a new tab.

Explanation of portal item links
Change to a List View with the icon in the upper right side of the page. In List View, resource information about the demo are shown next to the thumbnails. This is the view you can use to rate an application or share an application with social networking site or forward to a friend or colleague via email.

In both views, items can be filtered by a plain text search of an application's title, summary, or description or by one or more tags.  Clicking the "x" button will remove all filters. You can also sort filtered items by publication date, rating or author, by clicking the appropriate icons at the upper right hand corer of the view.

At present, there are more than 50 prototype applications for you to explore. Many of these applications have shared source code and accompanied demonstration videos. We encourage you to rate these apps, provide feedback and share socially. Esri employees and Esri distributors are also welcome! 🙂 You will be treated with access to a few extra applications that are either still in testing or have certain restrictions.

Enjoy and welcome again to the new Prototype Lab Portal.

Your first hyperlink at the top is invalid.  It looks like there is a period after maps.esri.com in the hostname.

Yes, the dot had slipped in. Thanks for the note.

Apparently, when using Chrome (58.0.3029.96), when I click on the  in a demo thumbnail, nothing happens. Works fine in FireFox and IE 11. 

Brilliant effort.  Many thanks
