It’s Alive! Creating a ‘living’ map and dashboard with ArcGIS Online

12:00pm to 1:15pm

Location: 

Online via Zoom

Presentation by Brian Baldwin, ESRI

 

Abstract

GIS is no longer about creating static maps (well… unless you want to). With ArcGIS Online users can connect to thousands of authoritative real-time datasets, analyze this data, modify symbology, and then configure custom applications. This session will demonstrate some of the recent updates to ArcGIS Online by showing a configurable dashboard highlighting 2020 ACS census and weather impacts getting built on the fly.
