ArcGIS Online is a cloud-based content management system that allows you to create interactive maps and apps and share them with the rest of your organization. You can do this quickly and easily with nothing to install or setup.
Ready to Use: ArcGIS Online is software delivered as a service, giving you and your team intuitive tools to create and publish maps and apps on demand. You stay in control of your data, and empower everyone with easy-to-use maps on the Web.
Ready-to-Use Content: Access a rich collection of basemaps, demographic maps, image services, and data. These maps are a great foundation for your work and are created from commercial data providers and GIS user communities around the world. A gallery of ready-to-use templates allows you to get up and running quickly. See how others are using the Story Map Templates to develop interactive apps that tell a story about our world.
Reach Your Users
Easily Share Data: Effortlessly share your maps on blogs, Web pages and Web applications, Facebook and Twitter.
Go Mobile: With the free downloadable ArcGIS app for smartphones and tablets, you and your organization can access your maps wherever you are, at any time. Simply use the browser on your mobile device to discover content, collect and report data, and perform GIS analysis.
Your Data in the Cloud: Turn your data into Web-enabled services your whole organization can use. Publish your data as feature services directly from within ArcGIS Online, or as tiled map services using ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop. Your published services are hosted in Esri's secure cloud and you maintain all ownership and rights.
Collaboration Made Easy: ArcGIS Online gives you an easy-to-use and intuitive workspace for collaborating with others in your organization. Users can create groups and invite others to work together on projects of common interest. Groups can be either private or public, and group members can share maps, data, and other content with each other efficiently and quickly.
Create and Add Rich Data
Easily Add Data: Turn your data into useful information by creating content-rich intelligent maps that tell your story. You can add your data and create mashups with maps and data shared by other users. You can also add pop-ups to your map to highlight information including photos or links to Web pages.
Make Maps Directly in Excel: Create interactive maps of your data directly in Excel with the Esri Maps for Office add-in. Quickly map addresses or locations and other geographic data such as sales by territory. Then add the map you created in Excel as a slide to your PowerPoint presentation or publish and share your map in ArcGIS Online for others to use.
Analyze Your Data
Overlay Layers: Combine two or more layers into one single layer to find which features are on top of other features, such as finding what land use is on top of what soil type.
Conduct Hot-Spot Analysis: Analyze incident data, such as traffic accidents, or the values associated with features and find statistically significant spatial clusters of high values (hot spots) and low values (cold spots).
Explore Correlations: Examine the strength of relationships among the numeric attributes of features, such as determining whether proximity to liquor stores has a strong and consistently positive relationship with crime.
Rest Assured, Your Data is Secure
Security & Data Ownership:You control who can access your data and maps. Multiple layers of security protect your information from unauthorized access.
A Flexible, Affordable Solution
A flexible payment plan: ArcGIS Online is based on an annual subscription that offers a set of plans you can choose from. Service credits are the currency for ArcGIS Online and are used in exchange for any of the hosted services an ArcGIS Online subscriber uses.
We didn't have the infrastructure to host all the data we needed to conduct this study effectively, so we looked for free, publicly available resources that could help us do the work. ArcGIS Online enabled our students to visualize the changes in the Bluffs over time and uncover connections between the environment, the population and property values. It's a good tool for promoting collaboration within the class, while helping students hone their research and analysis skills.
