I am having a hard time with some of the new user lessons...
I am working on some of the Learn ArcGIS for New Users and I am finding that the directions in the lessons are not a match to the actual function of the new map viewer. So for instance I had a very hard time following the Create a policy map to address health conditions lessons because the histogram are is not clear, the invert map function is not labeled well to find it. When I get down to the filter data are and get to step 9 my map looks nothing like what it should be per the lesson. This has happened in other lessons too.
Have any suggestions? Not upset just want to make sure I am learning ArcGIS in the best way possible.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm sorry to hear you've been having trouble with the lessons.
It sounds like some of your troubles are due to a recent update to ArcGIS Online that has changed some UI - not all of our lessons have been updated yet to reflect these changes. I've attached a few screenshots of the new controls that might help you with the specific issues you mentioned in Create a policy map to address health conditions.
I also recommend the lesson Get started with ArcGIS Online, which was recently updated and should reflect the new UI in ArcGIS Online.
Thank you @HeatherSmith I appreciate it! Been trying to figure this out. Thank you! I will start that map over. Have to say I am learning a lot and having a lot of fun doing the map lessons. Also seeing how you all teach to interpret the map helps. I go through the lessons a little a little slower to try to learn.
