Experience the Community Maps Editor

The Community Maps Editor is a web app that enables you to edit parts of the Esri Community Maps basemap to add detailed features for universities, schools, parks, landmarks, and other special areas of interest. Currently, there are over 1,400 worldwide editors that have added over 165,000 features!

“There are so many edits made each day, it’s a challenge to keep track of it all. How can we gain an understanding of the feature types being added and where are these edits occurring?”, Seth Sarakaitis, Community Maps Program Manager.

Introducing the Community Maps Editor Experience. This tour invites users to a self-guided experience by exploring interactive maps that expose completed and in-progress ‘community development’.
