I am new to GIS. I am done making a map, using ArcGIS Online webmap. I have successfully installed QGIS 2.14, now I want to retrieve the map and layers from ArcGIS to be used in QGIS.

What steps should I take to download the map (data) from ArcGIS online?

  • The online map is a set of drawing rules to a huge archive of web-based data. Nothing about this is compatible with downloading data. QGIS could easily access the same sources, but you'd likely need to regenerate your map from scratch. See gis.stackexchange.com/questions/202615/… – Vince Jul 10 '17 at 23:59

As commented by @Vince:

Retrieving the map and layers from ArcGIS Online to view them in QGIS is a different topic to trying to download the data that is used by the map and layers on ArcGIS Online. Reviewing Difference between map layer and spatial dataset (e.g. feature class, shapefile)? may help to understand that concept.

Instead using ArcGIS Online, you can try nextgis.com - two directional data and styles intercharge.

Don't forget nice QGIS plugin - NextGIS Connect to achieve this functionality.

Additional documentation is here. Especially here.
