Open Data and Online Mapping (Using ArcGIS Online)

@ Honolulu Community College


Both the State of Hawaii and the City and County of Honolulu have open data policies and are making government data available through cloud-based online portals.

In this course, you will learn how to create a free ArcGIS Online public account and how to use that account to create and share Web maps with the public.
