Choose a template that fits your goal

Show a map in 2D or 3D

You've already created a great map or scene. Use a Configurable App to highlight, share, and encourage simple interactions from your audience. Let your map speak for itself. Enable your audience to interact and understand your maps with a selection of basic tools, including interactive pop-ups and informative legends.

Collect and edit data

Create web apps for users to collect and edit geospatial data. These apps allow users to submit or update locations and information about a specific topic, such as a pothole repair request or proposed zoning changes.

Explore data

Make it easy for viewers to explore and discover your spatial data. Your audience can use a variety of tools, such as interactive symbology, filtering, visualization, while navigating your dataset, to help others understand their data.

Provide local information

Enable your audience to search and discover points of interest within your map. Configure your app to accept an address or location and find what is nearby, closest, or within a specified distance.

Make a gallery

Provide convenient access to your geographic content by creating a gallery of layers, maps, or apps. Organize your content into themes or showcase all your content in one place.

Tell a story

Choose an interactive app that guides your audience through a spatial story using maps, images, narrative text, and multimedia content. Fully immerse your audience in the story you want to tell.
