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.

About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
