I have 32 world maps labeling countries a color by a status in my data. My problem is creating a way to properly display them. Is it possible to create a selection tool for the user when the map is published to browse the maps?
Can you elaborate a little more on what the intended audience will want to do with the published result? There are a lot of ways to share your content (multi layer PDF, ArcReader PMF, WebMap, Web App, StoryMap, just to name a few). The type of audience and what you want them to be able to do with your published result (only toggle layers or compare maps side by side for instance), determine what the best option might be...
Yes, of course.
I mapped the country status of 8 different diseases. Each disease is reported in the domestic and wild sector for two sixth month periods in the year 2014. This results in each disease having 4 map layers; domestic for jan-jun, domestic for jul-dec, wild for jan-jun, and wild for jul-dec. The status of each country is joined to the shape file and results in coloring the entire country.
The intended audience would want an easy way to navigate and compare the 4 maps for each disease, and maybe do the same for different diseases but each being in the same category.
So Xander may have helped me more than I thought. Original I didn't know ways I could publish. I looked into the Story Map Series and that seems like a great option. If I was to do a web app, do either of you have any input?
