is there a way to calculate X and Y directly from AGOL or a way to know them?

It would be great to know them to make link to google maps street view using X and Y

Hi Kathleen,

Some lessons and tutorials about view layers are being worked on, so stay tuned for updates. For right now, check out this blog for more information on View layers:

Hi Louis,

If you are looking to manually add a the y,x coordinates to a map viewer url:, 45.461058 

To find the coordinates for a specific feature, you can query this data from the rest endpoint by selecting the option return geometry:

Example URL:

Query: Emergency Facilities (ID: 0) 

If this doesn't quite meet your needs, I encourage you to log an idea on that outlines the workflow you are trying to accomplish. Where do you want to find this information? What is the desired output?

Hi Kelly,

Thank you for tour quick answer.

What i wanted to do is to make link in the pop-up windows (Using URL parameters in pop-ups | ArcGIS Blog ) that goes directly to the street view of Googlemap (or other) from the point geometry.

The problem is that i don't know how to get this geometry directly from the viewer of AGOL (and not from Rest API). I don't know if it exists (as in arcmap) hidden fields (shape@X and shape@Y) in AGOL that can be used is pop-ups parameters

What i want to get:{Shape@X}+,+{Shape@Y} as,4.426067,110.61h,5p,1z

Like this, the user can go directly in the streetview (other window) by clicking in the popup.
