10 things I like about ArcGIS Online

November 13, 2018 Mark Ho

ArcGIS Online is a cloud-based mapping platform for everyone. It connects people, locations and data using interactive web maps and apps. Here are 10 ways your organization can better leverage ArcGIS Online to create, organize and manage your geographic content in one system.

Last year, my colleague (and boss) Chris North wrote a Letterman-inspired blog post about 10 things he likes about ArcGIS ProEsri’s next-generation desktop GIS.   

Not to be outdone, I want to give equal love to ArcGIS Online, a web-based GIS hosted by Esri and delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS). It connects users in your organization with up-to-date content, including ready-to-use apps, maps, 3D scenes and layers. 

These connections are happening everywhere. Below are some quick statistics on how many users and transactions are leveraging ArcGIS Online right now.
