  • Access web maps by ID
  • Add widgets

2. Configurable Apps

  • Specific apps that bring your maps to life
  • Many to choose from
  • Configure, save, share, reconfigure
  • Source code on GitHub
  • Download, customize and host

3. Web AppBuilder

  • Powerful app builder
  • Mobile friendly apps
  • Many themes and layouts
  • Easy to configure, save, share
  • Builder - custom widgets and themes
