I am an aeronautical enginner, working with UAV´s for cartography and remote sensing. Working with this has brought me to ArcGIS in some manner. I must say that it is quate a impressive tool.

So, when i start to make my own map in ArcGIS online i start adding layers that i find on the ArcGIS Online network, and i can see that some layers or maps, like this, do have some customized icons that you can add to this mapp, and it pop-up window has content that is not the default ArcGIS Online Popup window content.

So my big question is: how can i make a layer, or a map, that has this features (customized icons with customized pop up window content). do i have to make a map from the ArcGIS desktop and publish it later? or can i do this with the ArcGIS Online free trial or full license?
