Web Maps

Web maps provide map exploration tools without the framing narrative and supporting imagery of the Storymaps, allowing the explorer to discover their own connections. Two ways are provided to view the web maps – first, by clicking on the thumbnail in the gallery, which displays the web map in a Classic Map Viewer application which permits explorers to turn map features on and off at will, change the base map imagery, take measurements, and go to map Bookmarks. The second way to view a web map is directly in ArcGIS Online, described below the Web Map gallery.
