HOW TO nominate your stuff to the ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World

The ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World is an intergalactic sentient digital entity that benevolently accepts and distributes maps and map data to the eager masses. In this video I’ll show you how to nominate something to the Living Atlas. One note here. In the video I nominate an ArcGIS Pro project package. Turns out only esri accounts can do that. But the nomination process is the same for all item types. Anyway, enjoy the show…

Check it out if you are looking for map nerd stuff like dashboards, apps, maps, and data. But you can also contribute your own map nerd stuff (like I just did with this ArcGIS Pro project package of two poster designs of Switzerland) to the Living Atlas if you’d like to share it with those same eager masses. Here is a checklist to peruse that will let you know if your stuff is Living Atlas ready. And, if you just can’t seem to read enough about Living Atlas nominations, then I invite you to revel in the details of this StoryMap written by the (in)famous Lisa Berry (who also races cars). Lisa also made this one minute video (that’s like half as long as this one!) showing how to nominate. You are not lacking in Living Atlas nomination how-tos and for that I simply will not apologize.

Happy Nominating! John

About the author

I have far too much fun looking for ways to understand and present data visually, hopefully driving product strategy and engaging users. I work in the Content team at Esri, pushing and pulling data in all sorts of absurd ways -and then talking about it. I also get to spend time with the Story Maps team, working on fun and useful user experiences. When I'm not doing those things, I'm chasing around toddlers and wrangling chickens, and generally getting into other ad-hoc adventures. Life is good.
