What is ArcGIS Online?
Getting access to ArcGIS Online
At St Olaf College, ArcGIS Online is accessed through your St Olaf username and password. However, ArcGIS Online seats are controlled. If you are a St Olaf faculty or staff member, please drop a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org and outline briefly what you hope to do with ArcGIS Online. Want to use it in your course? Sure thing! Want to use map-based assignments in your classes and give ArcGIS Online to your students? We’ve got your back.
If you are a St Olaf student, email email@example.com too, with an outline what you’d like to use ArcGIS.com for. We do watch the seats we have in use, so we’ll give preference to academic uses, but there’s likely room for you. Unfortunately we can only offer access and support for ArcGIS Online to members of the St Olaf community.
In addition to ArcGIS Online, ESRI also offers a product called Storymaps as well. Storymaps use ArcGIS Online behind the scenes to create online presentations and web applications that combine maps, data, and your images to tell data-driven stories about almost anything in interesting and compelling ways. Since storymaps are part of ArcGIS Online, you get access to them when you’re added to the list of ArcGIS Online users as well. They’re easy to create and require no coding skills. Behind the scenes, they rely on ArcGIS Online maps, which you’re able to work with in the full ArcGIS Online environment, editing and adding data to that can then appear in your Storymap.
