Hi Everyone,

I have a question regarding uploading or data to ArcGis Online.  I either don't understand the ins and outs or I'm reading to much into things.  What is the best way to upload datasets to ArcGIS online for others to view?  Is there a way to build the map with all the data in ArcGIS 10.1 and then load that map so that it will display in ArcGIS online?  I thought with 10.1 this would be an option.  I really don't want to zip or save every shapefile I have into a csv file.  I also do not have ArcServer etc.  Is there any good tutorials to help me better understand the process?  It would save me a ton of time if I could set everything up in my map and then upload a map/package to ArcGIS online and have others witout ArcGIS be able to open it in ArcGIS online.  Thanks for the help.
