With integrated web maps from ArcGIS Online, you can inform yourself about San Diego Conference Center, agenda of the conference and further activities as the 5k Fun Run or Thursday Night Party in Balboa Park. Another great web map, called "San Diego Shortlist", displays the best places to go in San Diego, regarding fun, food or activities. Check out our app here: http://www.mapapps.de/mapapps/welcome.html
20.06.2013We recently extended map.apps query functionalities with the ability to find web maps in ArcGIS Online and dynamically load them in a map.apps app. The query functionality is accessible in two ways:
- through the existing omni-search widget normally used for location queries; this is a simple query that works with simple search terms
- through a new, dedicated ArcGIS Online Web Map Query Widget; this allows to query for additional parameters, like title, owner, tag, etc
10.06.2013Responsive design has become a more and more trending topic. It describes an approach to create websites and web-applications that adapt their layout to the given limitations of the requesting display devices. Before diving into technical details, try it yourself. Run the demo app on a desktop PC, tablet and/or mobile phone to see how the device will affect the layout of map.apps. You can also modify the width of your browser to see the layout changes.
29.05.2013As described in previous blog posts, it is possible to use map.apps as a web application template in ArcGIS Online. A new public demo is now available to show the workflow and benefits in a live demonstration. You may use our public hosted template to try using map.apps as a template to display your own web maps and configuring map.apps with means of ArcGIS Online or the integrated map.apps in-app configuration. All configuration will be stored in your own ArcGIS Online account.
27.05.2013Mapping apps have been part of the web ecosystem for a long time now. While simple, generic applications enjoy great popularity amongst general users, professional users are also part of this trend, as organisations increasingly see the value of publishing their own data holdings into the Web. Once data and services are accessible via the Internet, the question about access protection and authorization is often raised, and rightly so. Luckily, there is a solution available to provide peace of mind when publishing potentially sensitive spatial data via the Internet.
23.05.2013map.apps has extended its ArcGIS Online Support with the ability to let apps authenticate against ArcGIS Online in order to be able to consume/provide protected resources from an organizational account. What’s the business value of this? There are numerous cases where the user of an app is not necessarily also a user of the ArcGIS Online platform. Think of a large insurance company. They are running an ArcGIS Online subscription to manage claims. This is sensitive information which will be kept private and internal to the ArcGIS Online subscription, with limited access to only those employees which are also registered as named users in an ArcGIS Online account.
