GIS WebMap Essentials


Within the wealth of products and services available in the ArcGIS family, Esri has created a cloud platform for sharing, publishing, and consuming GIS content, called ArcGIS Online or, if behind your firewall, ArcGIS Portal (a part of ArcGIS Enterprise). But what is it? How do I use it? How does it interact with ArcGIS Desktop? This course will answer these questions and more, by providing ArcGIS Desktop (Map and Pro) users with a comprehensive overview of the functionality and uses of ArcGIS Online, as well as a brief introduction to the Esri Maps for Office app. In addition to the basics, this course will touch on topics relevant to the modern online business world, including security, data interoperability, and best-practices and tips for publishing, managing, and sharing your online content.



Those who are already familiar with ArcGIS and want to learn how to utilize the ArcGIS Online and Portal capabilities, create web maps, and manage online content.
