I'd like to add some text (not label features) to a few features on my ArcGIS Online map. Can I do this using the Map Viewer?
I think you have 3 options:
- Add "Map Notes" layer to your map and then create "Text" features
- Use the new feature of ArcGIS Online to manage labels on feature services layers
- Publish a dynamic map service containing annotation layer from ArcGIS for Server and use it in your Web Map
I dont think this is possible at the moment. You could add a text "layer" as outlined here Adding labels to ArcGIS Online web maps: Part 1 | ArcGIS Blog
I think the easiest way is to put a description to the Map Notes
Thank to everyone who responded. I created a dynamic map service with some "dummy" points with the labels that I wanted and symbolized the points as transparent, then labeled the points in Map Viewer.
The Map Notes work fine for labeling (add Map Notes Labels) but beware that in the Legend the entire Map Notes Template features will display so you'll see Map Note features in the Legend even though you've only created Map Note Labels.
