What is ArcGIS Online?

ArcGIS Online is the online cloud based service supplementing the ESRI ArcGIS Suite. ArcGIS Online (AGOL) allows users to upload and share data layers as content, publish and share maps and web applications, search for data other users have shared, and perform limited analysis similar to the Desktop application.

Users can get a free AGOL account, or anyone affiliated with the University of Richmond has access to a free account through the University’s Organizational Account.
