2D: Introduction to ArcGIS Online

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This 90-minute session will provide a brief introduction to geographic information systems (GIS) and ArcGIS Online. It will show how ArcGIS Online can be used to manage, visualize, and share geospatial data. Participants will learn how to search ArcGIS Online for data, upload local datasets, customize dataset symbology, and carry out basic analysis. They will also learn how to create content in ArcGIS Online by publishing a hosted feature layer and by saving and sharing a web map. The workshop structure will consist of presentation slides and a hands-on interactive portion where participants will gain direct experience working with ArcGIS Online. This session is intended for all TCDL attendees who are interested in GIS and no prior experience is required.

It is preferred that attendees have a pre-existing institutional ArcGIS Online account created prior to the start of the workshop, but this is not a requirement and attendees will have the option to create a public ArcGIS Online account during the session. If you do not already have an institutional ArcGIS Online account created, we recommend checking with your institution's ArcGIS Online administrator or ArcGIS Online policies to determine how you can create one.

Participants will be given time to ask questions at the end of the workshop.
