New Live Feeds in ArcGIS Online Include Oceans and Hydro Content

From the ArcGIS Content Team

ArcGIS Online includes a living atlas of the world with beautiful and authoritative maps on many topics, including a rich collection of earth observation maps and layers that describe our planet’s current conditions, from earthquakes and fires to severe weather and hurricanes. To enhance and expand this collection, Esri has published a new set of “live feeds” layers featuring frequently updated data from several sources, including NOAA, NASA, and USGS.

For the past few years, Esri has developed an Aggregated Live Feeds methodology in support of our Disaster Response Program that enables us and other ArcGIS users to publish various useful datasets, such as current weather conditions or active wildfires, as live map services. Esri has now integrated several of these services into the ArcGIS Online platform so that we can make them readily available to ArcGIS Online subscribers for use in their maps and applications. The initial set of maps and layers that are available include:

  • Active Hurricanes: Describes the path and forecast path of tropical activity from the NOAA National Hurricane Center and Joint Typhoon Warning Center.
  • Recent Hurricanes: Features hurricane tracks and positions, providing information on recent storms.
  • USA Stream Gauges: Provides readings of stream gauges around the United States, which depict the current water level in the measured areas.

    These layers are not working for me when trying to add to an AGOL map.

    The layer, USA Stream Gauges, is not responding.
    Still trying..

    The layer, USA Stream Gauges, cannot be added to the map.

    Thank you.

      I have referred your comment to the ArcGIS Content team and hopefully you’ll hear from them soon (direct to your email). Thank you for your patience as many Esri staffers are taking some vacation time now to recover from our humongous User Conference last week in San Diego.
