ArcGIS Online Community Maps Workshop
Through Esri's Community Maps Program your organization can contribute its geographic data to become part of a community map that Esri publishes and hosts online. The contributed content is integrated into the World Topographic Map, hosted as part of ArcGIS Online maps, and freely accessible for use in your own applications. To empower our users with the knowledge needed to contribute their content to the Community Maps Program, Esri invites you to participate in this free, hands-on virtual workshop. Esri staff will be on hand to provide support in real time.
Who Should Attend
This workshop is specifically focused on the needs of authoritative contributors to the Community Maps Program. Authoritative contributors are organizations that either create or maintain the data layers they intend to contribute and are responsible for the data's accuracy. To determine if you meet the requirements to be a Community Maps contributor, ask yourself these questions:
- Do you maintain any of the basemap data layers accepted by the Community Maps Program?
- Do you have ownership of the data and the rights to use it in an online map service?
- Are you willing to permit Esri to host your content in a public cached map service through ArcGIS Online?
If you answer yes to these questions, then you are a perfect candidate for the Community Maps Program and will benefit from this workshop.
Learn How To
- Assemble data—ensure the available data layers are complete enough and have the proper level of attribution to drive the cartographic product.
- Migrate data—use ArcGIS for Desktop and the ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension to migrate source data to the Local Government Information Model, which provides the schema for the World Topographic Map.
- Perform data QC—use feedback and tools provided by the Community Maps Program to locate and correct data issues.
- Use the World Topographic Map service in a simple web application—take advantage of preconfigured templates to create a web application that combines the World Topographic Map and operational data.
