Web Mapping (Building web-based applications using Experience Builder for ArcGIS)


This course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to build interactive web-based mapping applications using Experience Builder for ArcGIS. Experience Builder is a powerful tool that allows users to create and customize web applications without the need for coding. Through hands-on exercises and practical examples, participants will learn how to leverage the capabilities of Experience Builder to create visually appealing and functional web maps.

Targeted Groups:

  • GIS Professionals: Individuals working in the field of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) who want to enhance their skills in web mapping and create interactive applications.
  • Developers: Web developers or programmers interested in expanding their knowledge of web mapping technologies and learning how to build mapping applications without coding.

Targeted Competencies:

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamental concepts of web mapping and its applications.
  • Use Experience Builder for ArcGIS to create customized web mapping applications.
  • Incorporate different data sources, such as shapefiles, geodatabases, and online services, into web maps.
  • Configure and style web maps with different basemaps, symbols, and labels.
  • Create interactive and dynamic web applications with tools and widgets provided by Experience Builder.
  • Publish and share web applications with others.
  • Implement advanced features such as filtering, querying, and spatial analysis in web maps.
  • Optimize web mapping applications for various devices and screen sizes.
