I am using ArcGIS JS API for creating a different type of maps. I am pretty much clear on how do I create point maps using Lat/Long fields. But I don't seem to get a way to create choropleth map like this.


I want to create maps similar to this. It will be limited to the USA but it can be by state or county or zip. From where I am supposed to get geometry information for these regions so that I can use them with my own data and then host a feature layer on ArcGIS online to use in my application? All the examples provided by ArcGIS uses some hosted layer like https://services.arcgis.com/V6ZHFr6zdgNZuVG0/arcgis/rest/services/counties_politics_poverty/FeatureServer/0 but I don't know what do I have to do to host something similar with my own data to create a feature service.

By now I am very familiar with the ArcGIS API, the only thing I don't understand is from where I am supposed to get geometry information for say USA states.

You may find the ArcGIS Dev Labs helpful for this. This one, for example, focuses solely on how to get started with data that isn't a hosted feature service on ArcGIS Online: https://developers.arcgis.com/labs/arcgisonline/import-data/
