The problem I am having is I don't know what URL to use. Is it the same URL as the one you get when you "share" your map from the web portal?

Hello, I have a friend who has the ArcGIS desktop suite. He uses ArcMap to create routes with layers, etc. and somehow (I don't know much about the desktop apps) but somehow he "publishes" his map and layers to ArcGIS website.

 

I can login to ArcGIS.com and see the map and layers and view them right online using the dynamically created web app feature or create a presentation, etc).

I am a developer using ArcGIS for android. My app creates an instance of a MapView class. The problem I am having is I don't know how to pull the data that my friend and I can view on the web. From what I have read I think I should be using the WSLayer which is a layer that lives out in some map server.

 

I was reading some tutorial online and here is what they said about adding layers from the web: The problem I am having is

 

- I don't know what URL to use. Is it the same URL as the one you get when you "share" your map from the web portal?

- Can I use the same URL as the webpage?

- According to official documentary the map must be on a Map Server, does this mean I may have to pay money to host map.
