It seems Esri has rolled out loads of new updates for ArcGIS Online and Twitter is buzzing about it! Look for new animations, cloud data support, configurable apps, join feature improvements, story map updates and more.
Some of the updates to hit this roll out include:
- New Arcade for Map viewer – a new lightweight expression language introduced at this release. You can author, edit, or apply custom expressions written in Arcade when styling and labeling feature layers in the map viewer. Additional map viewer enhancements include updates to attribute tables, time animations, dynamic labeling, route generation and more.
- Point cloud data can now be visualized on the web using a new layer type, point cloud scene layers, optimized for fast display of many kinds of 3D sensor data, including LiDAR.
- Vector tile layers can now be used in 3D, offering much faster loading. They can be brought into your scenes as operational layers or as basemaps.
