We are planning an update to ArcGIS Online on September 17. The purpose of this communication is to provide you with information ahead of the update about planned changes, enhancements and new features. An additional communication will be shared approximately one week before the update as a reminder along with final notes on what you can expect. Here’s what we currently have planned for the update:
Launch of ArcGIS Marketplace
ArcGIS Marketplace will provide an organization with an easier way to discover and access apps and data for use within the ArcGIS platform. ArcGIS Marketplace will be a one stop for data from organizations such as DigitalGlobe, RapidEye, and Esri, as well as apps created by Esri partners, Esri and our distributors. Apps and data in the marketplace are all specifically built to leverage and enhance what your organization can do with ArcGIS Online and will include paid and free apps, and many apps will have free trials. The launch of ArcGIS Marketplace may not coincide with the ArcGIS Online update but is planned for sometime in September.
Map viewer improvements
- Easier access to a gallery of Esri map layers from the Add button in the map viewer.
- The ability to reorder map layers in TOC and legend using drag and drop.
- An interactive Geosearch experience that suggests places in a list as you type in the request.
