GIS is for everyone! ArcGIS Online for Organizations (AGO) offers a way to create interactive web maps and web-map applications which can be shared with any website user. With nothing more than a web browser, workshop attendees will learn how to take advantage of ready-to-use online geospatial data and map resources to quickly put GIS to work. They will learn how to create an interactive web map and then create and publish a user-friendly web-map application that can be easily consumed by planners, project managers, customers, and citizens.


Anyone who wants to learn how to create interactive web maps and applications.
