Final Reminder—Live Feeds from Technical Marketing will be Retired on December 31, 2016

Over the past year, we have been migrating the live feeds, provided by Esri Tech Marketing (http://tmservices1.esri.com), to ArcGIS Online.  All of these feeds are now part of the Living Atlas collection under the “Earth Observations” category.  As we have announced previously, the Technical Marketing Services will be retired at the end of this year—December 31, 2016.  This is a friendly reminder to update your maps and apps to use the new location of the live feeds before the end of the year.

There is no charge to use these services and no credits are consumed, but you do have to have an ArcGIS Online organizational subscription or developer account.  With Portal for ArcGIS at 10.5, you can leverage these live feeds by following these steps.  Also note, these feeds can be shared publicly in maps and apps, but there are a couple of extra steps.  The Story Maps Check Stories tool is very helpful to ensure there are no issues when sharing these feeds in public apps.

Here is the full list of live feeds and their permanent location:

Don’t forget to update your web maps and apps to point to these new services by the end of the year!
