Data hosting and services
ArcGIS Online and the developer dashboard provide tools that you can use to store and manage data for your applications. You can import existing data, create new datasets, or convert data to new types of data. All data is managed and accessed as a hosted layer, and each layer is powered by a data service. Once hosted, you can easily access your data as services from applications.
