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.

Open web maps in ArcGIS Online

Clicking on these links will open web maps in ArcGIS Online without a login. This adds more controls such as the ability to modify symbols, do basic filtering and view the underlying data table. You may also log into your ArcGIS Online account to view the web maps. Logging in from a free ArcGIS Online Public account adds the ability to save a copy of the map and add your own data to create your own map. Logging in from an ArcGIS Online Organization Account adds powerful analysis tools and the ability to publish your own web maps hosted on the ArcGIS Online Cloud.

ArcGIS Online Organization Accounts are free for K-12 schools through Esri’s support of the ConnectEd program: http://connected.esri.com/
