The ArcGIS Online mapping platform is now available to all Stanford affiliates

ArcGIS Online is an online, collaborative GIS that allows you to use, create, and share maps, scenes, apps, layers, analytics, and data. You get access to Living Atlas of the World, Business and Community Analyst apps, and Esri's secure cloud, where you can add items and publish web layers.

An excellent example of what can be done with ArcGIS Online is the Stanford Geospatial Center's Gaihōzu: Japanese Imperial Maps portal, which provides access to the most popular objects in the Stanford Digital Repository.

 

Over the last few months, we’ve been testing Single Sign-On (SSO) for providing access to ArcGIS.com, which we have licensed for the use of all Stanford affiliates.  This means that you no longer need to go through the Stanford Geospatial Center to get an account!
