ABSTRACT: This presentation will offer a road map for implementing a new ArcGIS Open Data website. The University of Rhode Island Environmental Data Center is developing an ArcGIS Open Data website on behalf of the Rhode Island GIS (RIGIS) consortium, building upon the consortium's adoption of an open data distribution policy in 2014. Although the standard RIGIS data distribution website will live on, we believe that an ArcGIS Open Data site will further expand the RIGIS user base and be more inclusive of prospective users and developers who do not necessarily work with Esri software and data formats. During this presentation I will focus on the process of getting an ArcGIS Open Data site up and running. First, I will discuss data preparation – creating field aliases and removing empty or sparsely populated fields. Then I will discuss metadata preparation – ensuring metadata have been exported from ArcCatalog in the ArcGIS metadata format so that it can be imported to ArcGIS Online. Finally, I will discuss some of the logistics of creating an ArcGIS Open Data site, including creating and assigning groups, and uploading data to these specially designated groups.
