Making maps shine with ArcGIS Online

Note: This webinar is part 2 of a series on the use of online mapping in Cooperative Extension. Check out the other webinars on 1. the use of online mapping in outreach, 3. making Esri Story Maps on your computer, and 4. making Esri Story Maps on your mobile device.


Making and sharing online maps
ArcGIS Online is one of the most powerful tools currently available to make and share online maps. You can create maps using your own data (csv, GIS, GPS) in addition to using data posted online by people and organizations throughout the world. Once your basic map is created, you also have the ability to create a "web app", providing a more interactive and professional looking map to share with others (no programming knowledge required!). Whether you are using a free ArcGIS Online public account or a  subscription account, you will be amazed at the ways in which you can share information and spread your outreach message.

Getting up and running with ArcGIS Online
This webinar will cover the basic use of ArcGIS Online, including the creation of maps and web apps. The types of accounts (public vs. subscription) will also be discussed, including some of the thoughts on their use in communication and data management.
