Today’s technology has made it easier than ever to effectively share global information with the world. This information can be shared in a variety of ways, including web browsers, mobile devices, and desktop viewers. The Community Maps Team and ArcGIS Online encourage the creation and sharing of content. While sharing content is important, how we share this content may be even more important. Content and information is seldom useful if it is not well crafted and presented clearly. Below are some tips on how one can add value to shared content, ensuring that web maps and apps are engaging and contain the appropriate supporting information.

Using ArcGIS Online it is easy to create and share maps that can be opened in either a web browser or inside the ArcGIS application on your smartphone/tablet device
Sharing a map can be as simple as sharing a link by email. Opening the web browser and a web application from a link is universal. Just simply paste the URL inside of your email and mobile mail clients will recognize it and open the web browser when you tap on it. For example, Ecological Footprints of Nations is a link you can tap on if reading this post on your iPad or Android tablet and it will open up the web browser and point it to http://www.arcgis.com/home/webmap/viewer.html?webmap=1a40fa5cc1ab4569b79f45444d728067.
