I'm hoping to compile a list of add-ins & resources for ArcGIS Explorer. I intend to install it at home, and apparently, there are a number of server feeds out there that can significantly augment the capabilities of this free ESRI software (IMS/WMS servers, toolbox items, etc, etc).

I thought many of you might be interested in having access to such a compilation as well, especially since it's a free software. I'm quite anxious to see what's out there!!

Try your best to give at least a brief description of the add-in/server feed you post in your answers.

Thanks everyone


Google finds AGX Social - Post your map image on Twitter & Facebook at arcgis.com.

But then, when I click on the add-in tag at the bottom of that page, I don't see anything, which seems kind of strange - obviously there is a page with that tag.


If I set the Show option to "All Content" ... enter image description here

Then click the "add-in" tag on the page, I get lots of results.


I guess "All content" means the universe, whereas "Web Content" means stuff not hosted at Arcgis.com.

  • I get the same result. Perhaps the URL was changed, or the link is broken? – Dano Aug 19 '11 at 17:24

  • +1 & +1 @ Kirk - There are quite a few of them - thank you! – Dano Aug 23 '11 at 17:14

ArcGIS Explorer is also available online now

If you want to customise your maps you need to have a global esri account.


  • I was aware that you could use an online interface. My thinking, in all honesty, was that I could expext better performance from having installed directly on my computer. This raises some questions for me: 1.Are there no other resources besides the ones at the link you posted? From what I read, ESRI does not limit developers from selling their add-ons. I assumed this meant that there might be other sources for tools and base map servers due to the "profit factor" 2.If not, then this is a bad question. That said, should it not be deleted? Your houghts/feedback would be appreciated Mapperz. – Dano Aug 18 '11 at 23:11
