I’m eager to learn how to use my own custom symbology in my web maps with the new Map Viewer. I have created a new style with a few different point styles of my own, and have created a 2D web styles group and have shared my published style into that group. I’ve also created a new web map with a hosted feature layer and I’m running into snags when I try to apply my custom symbology to that layer. I’m not sure what I’m missing and would cure appreciate any help you could provide!
I’m not seeing the ‘beta symbols’ category under Symbols dropdown, or my custom point called ‘gate host’. If you could give me any pointers, that would be awesome.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hey Russell, thanks for responding to my inquiry. Here's a screenshot of the symbols I'm seeing in map viewer. You'll see that the points are already a custom symbology because I published the feature service with the style already applied. But I'm not able to see my published web style in the options for symbols. And here's a link to the style in my group: https://lineagemapper.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=1303b438a2414136b71ca24338c77469
I sure appreciate your help!
Hmm.. I guess I'm not sure what you mean. I created a group and called it 2D Web Style and shared my published web style into the group. Do you mean I should go to my organization tab in AGOL and go to groups in there and click 'manage featured groups' and add my 2d web style group there? I didn't even this existed until now. I'll see if this works and let you know! - - -→ Ah, I see now. I have to make the group viewable by my organization or everyone then go to organization tab, settings, map, then find web styles and assign the 2D web styles there. Didn't know that existed either lol 🙂 Thanks friend!
Ok, I figured it out thanks to @RussellRoberts1 ! I didn't know what I didn't know and I had to learn a few things in order to get there, but here's the steps I was missing:
1. you have to create a group for your style - and do follow Russell's advice in this blog post about creating separate style groups for 2D and 3D (I haven't done this yet but I'm sure this advice is solid)
2. You have to make sure the the group is viewable by either 'all organization members' or 'everyone'. Find this in Groups Tab→select your group→settings→Who can view this group?
3. Then you have to Organization tab→settings→Map on left menu→scroll down to Web styles, then select your 2D Web Styles group.
Whew! so glad I learned this today. Lots to look forward to with advanced symbology option in web maps 🙂 Thanks again @RussellRoberts1 !
