ArcGIS Online Tutorial and Map
An online tutorial for using ArcGIS Online is available at <http://www.lib.uwaterloo.ca/locations/umd/digital/documents/ArcGISOnline-Guide-FINAL.pdf>.
Completing this tutorial was required to prepare for the final graded assignment in Introduction to GeoWeb technologies, creation of a thematic “story map” in ArcGIS online.
The assignment is fairly strict in instruction, but did leave some room for adding a personal touch.
My finished online map is accessible online. As an information scientist, I appreciate the “metadata” landing page <http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=28cfb885dcb9481a8fb0def4fc55640b>.
The viewer for the map is accessible at <http://www.arcgis.com/apps/Viewer/index.html?appid=28cfb885dcb9481a8fb0def4fc55640b>. Note that the “appid” matches the html id from the prior page.
I’m also testing the “share” and “embed” feature immediately below the horizontal rule. This map features data from a variety of formats, as per the tutorial’s instruction: Shapefile, KML, GPX, tabular data, and raster (via Web service) data.
