Over the past year, we have been migrating the live feeds, provided by Esri Tech Marketing (, to ArcGIS Online.  All of these feeds are now part of the Living Atlas collection under the “Earth Observations” category.  As we have announced previously, the Technical Marketing Services will be retired at the end of this year—December 31, 2016.  This is a friendly reminder to update your maps and apps to use the new location of the live feeds before the end of the year.

There is no charge to use these services and no credits are consumed, but you do have to have an ArcGIS Online organizational subscription or developer account.  With Portal for ArcGIS at 10.5, you can leverage these live feeds by following these steps.  Also note, these feeds can be shared publicly in maps and apps, but there are a couple of extra steps.  The Story Maps Check Stories tool is very helpful to ensure there are no issues when sharing these feeds in public apps.

Here is the full list of live feeds and their permanent location:

Don’t forget to update your web maps and apps to point to these new services by the end of the year!

Managing risk requires people, technology, and processes working together in a coordinated and collaborative way to enhance safety, reduce vulnerabilities, and increase overall engagement with daily operations. Safety and security professionals must make the most of existing resources and domain expertise to ensure tactical and strategic success in their missions.


ArcGIS as a foundational analytical platform empowers you to do more with less by connecting disparate data from multiple organizations with overlapping missions. ArcGIS helps stakeholders with mutual interests communicate and better understand risks, community hazards, and crime problems. They can prepare for dealing with known and potential threats and have shared situational awareness.

ArcGIS can help your security organization with

  • Identifying vulnerabilities and mitigating potential impacts through risk assessment and planning.
  •   Collaborating seamlessly with other organizations and agencies to achieve unity of effort before, during, and after a crisis.
  •   Intelligently deploying staff and resources to quickly respond to and recover from complex emergencies.
  •   Communicating with and engaging your employees, government agencies, and the public to keep them informed.
  •   Institutionalizing data-driven decision-making and taking advantage of big data as well as fragmented sources of information.
