ArcGIS Online is a simple cloud-based collaborative content management system for producing, editing, and sharing geospatial data. Users can store data, maps, and applications. Users can also create and join groups where data and maps can be shared with other members and/or with the general public. It has been referred to as the “Facebook” of mapping. One day, it could be as big as Facebook itself, as its functionality continues to evolve on a regular basis, and the public’s thirst for digital mapping media continues to grow. This is because ArcGIS Online is a Web-based mapping solution that is meant for use by everyone - including GIS professionals and those with no formal GIS training. This course will discuss the details of ArcGIS Online and how individuals can best leverage this powerful tool for themselves and their organization. It will delve into how best administer it from an enterprise and individual level , and use it to author web maps and applications; publish tools and data, and easily share all of this with other people in an organization or the public.
