Customize Your ArcGIS Online Org Page

I wanted to do something a little different today. I was reading a post somewhere about how can GIS developers showcase their portfolio as part of their job search. One thing that came to mind aside from some of the standard stuff like maintaining a github account, was to showcase Web Maps, Layers and more…

Hello Arcade

Say hello to Arcade. It’s been a while since I’ve made a video. I had a lot of work to do for the DevSummit recently, but this week I decided to wait until the latest ArcGIS Online release because this release introduces a new platform expression language called Arcade!

Intro to ArcGIS SceneViewer

The SceneViewer application in the ArcGIS Platform is very similar to the MapViewer. However, the SceneViewer is designed specifically to set up your Scenes for use in your applications.

GeoJSON in ArcGIS Online

GeoJSON is the de facto standard for sharing spatial data online. It’s a neat format that keeps things simple. I think I’ve heard it called it "…the shapefile of the internet". Like shapefiles, you can take this simple piece of data and you can upload into ArcGIS Online using your free ArcGIS Developer account and…
