What's New in ArcGIS Online

ArcGIS Online’s April update includes new features for categorising content, finding layers, collecting data, and sharing maps. Continue reading for a quick introduction to these features and links to detailed information about the entire update.

New content categories

New content categories

Make your maps, scenes, and layers easier to find by assigning categories to them. These categories are set up by your organisation’s administrator or group owner and can be customised to match the work you do. Not only do content categories make it easier to find items when searching through your organisation’s and group’s content, they also help you quickly make sense of a long list of search results.

It’s easier to find layers

Newly added table and list views as well as item details within Map Viewer make browsing content more enjoyable. Filters were added, including category and item types, date, who it was shared with, and authoritative or deprecated status. Additional sort features also make it easier to find layers. As you peruse your search results, you can quickly add any layer to your favourites without leaving the search.

Ensure unique values in a field

Ensure unique values in a field

Use the new “unique values” data setting to prevent duplicate entries in fields in your hosted feature layer. Ensure unique values are being entered for fields like inspection ID or customer number. This setting also helps enforce data integrity so specific fields can be used as a primary key for tools like append and join.

New way to share: Media Map

Looking for a simple way to give viewers the opportunity to interact with your maps online? Media Map, the newest configurable app template, embeds neatly within news articles or blogs and performs well on mobile devices. Build the map using your own data or the maps and data within ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World. Then use the Media Map to share your map and provide context with an overview and legend.
