Everything grew, but how can you identify where it grew the most? Create a map using size and a custom symbol to show growth over time.You're an investigative reporter who has been assigned to write about general acute care hospitals in Clark County, Nevada.
It's up to you to find the interesting story. You've asked your intern to collect some basic data-where the hospitals are located, how many patients they see each year, and what they charge. From there, you'll see if anything interesting emerges that you can explore further.
She says you can add the data to a map and quickly see patterns and make adjustments to better highlight the information.
You can then save your work and share it with others.
This way, you can easily access the data and see other related items she's shared with the group. You see a table with columns of longitude, latitude, cases, name, cost, and so on. It's hard to visualize where these hospitals are located or any patterns in the information. Making a map is a better way to understand your data than viewing it as a table, so that's your next task. Web map layers are the way geographic data is organized and combined to create maps.
These layers are also the basis for geographic analysis. Seeing location-based information on a map is the foundation of understanding and making decisions. You can create a web map layer by adding your CSV file to a new map. If you haven't joined an organization and don't have an account yet, you can sign up for a free trial.
Map Viewer reads the geographic information in your file and displays the data so you can immediately see patterns. For example, you see different-sized circles and a legend that tells you the circles represent total cases in The larger the circle, the more patients that hospital admitted.
You also have quick access to the rest of your data by viewing pop-ups. The default Topographic basemap is better suited for a reference map than a thematic map. You'll change the basemap to something simpler.
Create a web map
That's better, but you want the circles to stand out even more so you'll change the style by choosing a different color for your symbols. The pop-up that you viewed earlier displayed unnecessary information that you can remove by configuring pop-ups.
You want to show only the name of the hospital and the number of total cases. Don't worry, you haven't lost your data. You can still see it by showing a table. Your map now tells a story about the location and size of hospitals in Clark County.
For example, the hospital with the largest caseload in is located in Winchester, an unincorporated township that contains the Las Vegas strip. The hospital with the smallest caseload is in Boulder City about 26 miles away. You assume these size differences reflect relative population density in those places, but you'll want to add some demographic data to your map to verify that.
For now, you'll save your map so you can share it with your editor when you present your story. If you're signed in with an organizational account and your organization has set up content categoriesyou can also select up to 20 categories to help others find your map. When assigning categories, you can use the Filter categories box to narrow the list. By saving your map, you also created a corresponding item page that contains a variety of information, actions, options, and settings.
Your map's item page opens in a new window. The item details are missing important attribution and descriptive information that you should fill in before you share the map.An ArcGIS organizational account allows you to see the organization's customized view of the website. It also gives you access to the organization's authoritative data and other geospatial content that you can use to create maps and apps.
As a member of an organization, you can also share your work with other members of your organization, participate in groups, and save your work.
Assign ArcGIS Pro licenses in ArcGIS Online
An ArcGIS public account is a free account for personal, noncommercial use. If you have an Esri account, it is automatically a public account and you can use it to sign in. You become a member of an ArcGIS organization when you are added to or invited to join the organization. The administrator can either create your account for you or allow you to create your own account. If the administrator creates your account, you receive an email invitation with instructions on signing in to your account.
If your administrator instead invites you to join with a new account you createyou receive an email invitation with instructions for creating your own organizational account. If you have a public account and are invited to join an existing ArcGIS organization, you can convert your public account to an organizational account. The public account becomes an organizational account and all your content moves to the organization.
An ArcGIS public account is a free account that is available for individuals to create and share content with limits on usage. ArcGIS Online sends you an email with a link to continue the creation of your account. The following characters are not allowed at the beginning or end of your user name:.
Weak passwords won't be accepted.
A password is considered weak if it's a commonly used password such as password1 or includes repetitive or sequential characters—for example, aaaabbbb or abcd. ArcGIS Online may prompt you for your email address if it can't get it from your social network.
Your email address is used to notify you about changes to your account. Feedback on this topic? Skip To Content. Back to Top. Create an organizational account You become a member of an ArcGIS organization when you are added to or invited to join the organization.

Type your first name, last name, and email address. Confirm your email address and click Next. Note: The following characters are not allowed at the beginning or end of your user name:.Before you can assign ArcGIS Pro licenses to members of your organization, the following conditions must be met:. After you confirm that ArcGIS Pro add-on licenses are available, you can assign them to members with the Creator user type.
Both of these user types can be assigned extension licenses. The steps to assign core product licenses and extension licenses are the same. The steps to unassign a license are also nearly identical. See the ArcGIS Online help for the steps to configure add-on licenses for one product or to configure add-on licenses for multiple products. It is possible for your organization to exceed the number of licenses available, resulting in negative availability.
This can happen, for example, if you make changes to your maintenance agreement or if trial licenses expire. If a license expires, you must unassign it so that all members are assigned valid licenses.
Until you correct the license assignments, no one in the organization will be able to sign in to authorize ArcGIS Pro or additional products. You may want to assign an ArcGIS Pro license to a member whose user type is not compatible with the license. In that case, you need to change the member's user type. If you change a member's user type to Creatoryou are able to assign the member an ArcGIS Pro add-on license, but the license is not assigned automatically.
You can assign member properties by default when you add members to the organization. You can also enable Esri access by default. This may be useful when a member is signed in to ArcGIS Pro on three computers at the same time the maximum allowed and needs to sign in on another computer. If the member is unable to sign out on one of the computers—for example, because the member is not physically present—you can end a session.
This enables the member to sign in on another computer. This usually means that the member has an active session. The session is ended. In ArcGIS Prothe user soon gets a message that they are no longer connected to a licensing portal.
The user has 60 minutes to save their work. By default, ArcGIS Pro named users can take their licenses offline to use the application in a disconnected environment. As the organization administrator, you can disable offline usage.Making Maps with ArcGIS Online
This setting is made for the organization as a whole, not for individual members. Esri access allows members of the organization to use their ArcGIS Online credentials in sections of Esri websites that require signing in.
Members cannot enable or disable Esri access for themselves; this option must be set by the ArcGIS Online organization administrator. The administrator can enable Esri access when a member is invited to join the organization or afterward.
If Esri access has been enabled but a Downloads tab does not appear under the My Organizations tab in My Esrithe member needs to click the Request Permissions side tab. Next, under Request Permissions to your Organizationthey need to click Continue and complete the form with a request for permission to download software. The request will be sent to the software administrator of your organization who may or may not be the ArcGIS Online organization administrator. Feedback on this topic?
