ArcGIS Platform

The ArcGIS Platform is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) that contains location services, including ready-to-use, data hosting, and content management services for developers. An ArcGIS account is required to access the Platform, create API keys or OAuth 2.0 access tokens to access services, and use tools to manage content and data. Developers can use the ArcGIS Platform to build custom mapping and spatial analysis applications that access data and services with APIs. All applications and APIs interact with services through a REST API.
