00:03Using the built-in map viewer for ArcGIS Online, you can create a map that uses...
00:07...data to tell interesting stories, perform analysis, and solve problems.
00:13You can share your map right from the map viewer...
00:15...with anybody who has a web browser, mobile device, or desktop application.
00:20This video shows you how to make a basic map...
00:22...and assumes you have privileges to create items and share them with others.
00:25Click the New Map button to start working on your own map.
00:29When you open a new map, the About panel has guided tours to help you...
00:33...and other members of your organization learn how to make a map.
00:36With the map viewer, you have everything you need to create a useful and interesting map...
00:40...including a gallery of basemaps, easy ways to add layers, sharing options, and other tools.
00:47To create your map, first zoom in to the area of interest.
00:51It’s useful to set your extent first if you are going to be searching for data...
00:55...since the map viewer finds layers based on the range of your map.
00:58This organization’s default extent is on Hawaii Island...
01:02...since it studies geospatial data for the Big Island.
01:05Once you have your extent, you are ready to add data.
01:08You can add data from a file, for example, a spreadsheet, or a layer on the web.
01:14You can search for data published by your organization...
01:16...the ArcGIS Online community, and Esri.
01:19If you were interested in analyzing health care spending in Hilo...
01:22...you could use the Add > Search for Layers > Esri Map Layers option...
01:26...and add a Health Care Spending data layer to your map; then, add some related census data.
01:31Once you’ve added your data, you can see how your map looks.
01:35View the legend, change the transparency to showcase certain layers over others, and so on.
01:40You also have the option of configuring pop-ups with custom-formatted text and charts.
01:45This better provides a rich, interactive experience for visualizing...
01:49...and comparing features in a particular layer.
01:52You can choose different symbols to represent the features you’ve added to your map.
01:56Click Save and enter the title, tags, and summary information.
02:02Verify the folder you want your map to be saved in, and then click Save Map.
02:06You can find your saved maps on the My Content page.
02:09By default, your map is private, meaning it is not accessible by anybody...
02:13...but you and your organization’s administrator.
02:15Open the item details and click the thumbnail to open your map.
02:19Now that you’ve created your map, share it with your organization...
02:22...make it public, embed it in your website, or use it to create an app.
