Hi - I've got a hyperlink to google map location I've inserted into ArcGIS online pop-up -- the problem is ArcGIS online isnt parsing the url correctly.  the url is:

 

https://www.google.com/maps/place/34%C2%B004'42.1%22N+117%C2%B042'17.6%22W/@34.078349,-117.7070777,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d34.078349!4d-117.704889?hl=en

 

when I I click the link in ArcGIS on line it goes to a place in the northern part of Algeria

 

it should be going to this location as it correctly does in ArcMap:

 

I've tried adding the anchor tag with target blank:

<a target='blank' href='https://www.google.com/maps/place/34%C2%B004'42.1%22N+117%C2%B042'17.6%22W/@34.078349,-117.7070777,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d34.078349!4d-117.704889?hl=en'>More Info</a>

 

but it gives the same result.  Any idea how I could change the llink to get it to parse correctly?  I'm thinking it has to be one of the special characters -- % or something that is throwing it off

 

In ArcGIS pro it throws an error without the anchor tag, and goes to the wrong location with the anchor tag

 

Thanks

 

Pete
