ArcGIS Online is a key component of the ArcGIS platform that enables users to share information and collaborate within or outside their organization. In this workshop, we will introduce the basic components of the ArcGIS Online environment as well as best practices for authoring and sharing content with individual users, your organization, and the public. Following these introductory components, we will proceed into basic administrative topics, such as managing users and content, as well as branding and embedding ArcGIS online into other web resources.

There are no prerequisites, though familiarity with GIS datasets is helpful.

Story maps combine maps, photos, text, and other media in a single interactive application. The engaging, fun-to-use format makes story maps ideal for public outreach, stakeholder engagement, and GIS project presentations. In this seminar, the presenters will show best practices for making story maps using Esri Story Map app templates that require no coding. Participants will learn how to choose the template that best meets their project needs, and the steps to create compelling story maps using a template.

Staging and Serving Scientific Data in ArcGIS Online

November 4, 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Learn how to serve multidimensional data providing discoverable content for scientists, researchers, and resource management professionals.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and other global scientific agencies collect and provide access to hundreds of raw multidimensional datasets online on a regular basis for information such as sea surface temperature and ice thickness. This workshop will provide the methodology and tools for university, government, and research institution faculty and staff to stage and serve scientific data in meaningful ways with ArcGIS for Server and ArcGIS Online. Workshop participants will use multimedia data to work through the staging, metadata, and serving steps required for transforming data into accessible and authoritative content in ArcGIS Online, enabling data discovery opportunities for colleagues and other researchers.
