Items and item types

Portals allow users to store and share a variety of items. Each item has a type, such as Web Map or Feature Service, and a set of type keywords that provide additional information about the characteristics of that type. Items can be classified into two broad type categories: web content and desktop content. Web content can be actively consumed across all client platforms including web browsers, mobile devices, tablets, and desktops. Desktop content is primarily consumed by desktop applications and must be published as geospatial web services before it can be widely consumed over the web. A portal can be used to store and share this content among users who can download the content and use it locally.

Note:

Web and mobile apps that work with content, including ArcGIS Online, may present only web-accessible content by default.

In each of the web and desktop content categories, items can be classified as maps, layers, styles, tools, applications, or data files based on their primary use.

In the context of the web, maps correspond to web maps, layers correspond to a variety of geospatial content services, tools correspond to a variety of geospatial task services, applications correspond to a variety of web and mobile mapping apps, and data files correspond to content that can be published to create geospatial services. In the context of the desktop, maps correspond to map packages and map documents, layers to layer packages, tools to geoprocessing and locator packages, applications to add-ins and other extensions, styles to desktop styles, and data files to a variety of files that can be shared via the portal.

Maps display geospatial information and consist of layers. Each layer corresponds to an information feed and represents a specific theme or information such as buildings, roads, or satellite imagery. A map and its layers can include authored items such as pop-up windows. Styles contain symbols, symbol primitives (such as colors), and layout elements such as north arrows and scale bars. Tools can be used or applied to the map to reveal additional information. Applications bring a map to life with specific behavior and context. Data files can be stored and shared and, in certain cases, published as information feeds.

Each item in a portal is a REST resource with its own URL. In addition to type and type keywords, an item includes properties such as Title, Description, Tags, and Thumbnail that are described as part of the item resource.

The types supported by the system are shown in the following tables. The addItem operation requires the caller adding an item to specify the type of the item, which must be one of the types described below. The type keywords corresponding to an item are added automatically and assist users in searching for the item.

Depending on its type, an item may have either a child data resource (<itemURL>/data) that contains the associated data for the item or a url property that contains the URL of the content corresponding to the item. The following tables indicate, for each item type, if it has associated data that is accessible via the child data resource.
