Get More from Groups

You will find new search and filters for working with group members. Use new tabs to configure and manage group properties, content, members, and settings. Plus, advanced control for group owners—add ‘delete protection’ and promote others to share management of members and content.

Quickly Access Content

You can easily explore and work with your content in a redesigned layout that brings everything together in one place. Access new tabs on the Content page. Search and filter content within each tab.

Showcase Your Story

Tell better stories with your maps or scenes, and add fresh content to enrich your story. Enhancements include:

  • Expanded Pop-up Data: Define and use attribute expressions written in Arcade to dynamically create new attributes from features.
  • Vector Basemap Galleries: Organizations can choose to use Esri vector basemaps in Map Viewer and Scene Viewer basemap galleries.
  • Points and Labels: Configure points to display above buildings in 3D scenes and assign 2D icons of 3D object symbols to point data. Get better depth perception in 3D views. And, see labels and points automatically declutter when you zoom out.
  • New Imagery: Find additional sets of DigitalGlobe imagery for several countries including the United States and Canada with detailed imagery for several hundred areas. This completes the initial set of updates for over 100 million sq. km. planned for the first year of the Esri partnership with DigitalGlobe.
  • Updated Demographics: Demographic maps now feature the latest 2017 current year estimates and 2022 five-year forecasts for the United States.  In addition, updates have been released for more than 30 other countries using the latest Michael Bauer Research (MBR) data.

Enhance Hosted Web Layers

Hosted tile layers are now more efficient, automatic, and economical. Tiles can be created only when requested (when a user zooms into an area). When publishing hosted tile layers from hosted feature layers, you can automatically create tiles and update them when there are changes in the source feature layer. And, your cost for publishing tiles is now reduced to one credit for generating 10,000 tiles.

Manage your Organization

With this release of ArcGIS Online, we have eliminated pre-defined plans so you can purchase the exact number of Named Users you need for your organization. Additional service credits are now available online in the Esri Store. We’ve also made it possible for organizations with heavy data workloads to upgrade to a premium feature data store to get dedicated compute resources for higher and more consistent performance.

Contribute to Product Design and Development

Contribute to Product Design and Development

The Esri User Experience Improvement program expanded to include ArcGIS Online. This is one of many ways Esri works side by side with users to advance its products. With no interruption to your work, the program collects information about the usage of ArcGIS Online, including hardware and browser characteristics. It is completely optional and anonymous. Organizations within the US join the program automatically and can opt out any time. Outside the U.S., organizations can opt in to contribute to the design and development of ArcGIS Online.

Meet ArcGIS Hub

ArcGIS Hub is a new product that helps governments and communities organize and engage around policy initiatives. Organizations will now access and manage their Open Data through ArcGIS Hub. Existing Open Data functionality and capabilities will continue to remain the same as part of your organization’s ArcGIS Online subscription.

We trust these updates will support your needs as you continue to make and share impressive maps. For a complete list of the June updates, please visit ArcGIS Online Help and the ArcGIS Blog.
