Add Content to a map FeedbackFeedback E-mail this topicE-mail this topic Print this topicPrint this topic

The map you work with in ArcGIS Explorer contains content that's served from one or more servers. You can add content from several other sources to augment what the map conveys or provide the basis for understanding the place you are investigating more fully. This additional content can come from other servers to which you have access or that's available on your local machine or network. The content can take many forms, including layers created in ArcGIS, content that's been exported from another map, globe and map services available from ArcGIS Servers, data from ArcIMS or WMS servers, file geodatabase data, shapefiles, raster data, Keyhole® Markup Language (KML) files, text files that contain addresses or coordinates, and data types in a GPS file.
