Level: Introductory

Ben Ramseth

Instructor Technical Lead


In this session the presenter will explore the steps to building a map centric web application. This will be done using Esri's ArcGIS API for JavaScript. This API provides the JavaScript classes needed to build a robust web mapping application. This web application will communicate with REST endpoints available through Esri's ArcGIS Platform. The ArcGIS Platform provides many ways to visualize, store and analyze spatial data. Using HTML5/JS/CSS3, a web developer can build a cross platform map centric web application that will run in a browser on smartphones, tablets and desktop computers.

You will learn:

  • Learn to add a map with navigation to a web application
  • Explore ways to add data to the map
  • Discover ways to query and analyze data
  • Integrate HTML5 features
