I'm working on an ArcGIS Online Web App. Basically what I want the user to be able to do is:

  • Select a state from a basic US state polygon map
  • From that state selection, the user then chooses a filter (e.g. the type of weather event: flood, hail, tornadoes, etc.)
  • Based on the filter they choose, a window will pop up with links to different AGOL Web Maps (that I've created) for various scenarios of that filter type (flood, hail, etc.) for that state
  • The user can then follow the link to a separate AGOL Web Map page

As an example workflow: The user opens the app, selects the state of Nebraska, chooses the filter for floods, and then sees a list of Web Map links to various flooding scenarios in Nebraska. The link they select will take them to a separate Web Map page.

The purpose of having links to separate Web Maps is to simplify the app homepage to have less layers, since there will be many maps utilized.

I am working in Web AppBuilder. I've added the state polygon layer and see many widgets for Selecting, Querying, and pulling info from a layer, but none for intersecting maps that are not included as layers in the App. I also don't see a way of filtering the results of the polygon selection (to specify desired weather event). What widgets or tools can I use to complete this workflow?

selects the state of Nebraska -> Add Data widget

chooses the filter for floods -> Attribute table widget, filter

sees a list of Web Map links to various flooding scenarios in Nebraska -> result will disply in the Arribute table widget.

The link they select will take them to a separate Web Map page -> Not sure what you mean here, are you planning to create seperate Web Map for each individual flood location? If so, I'd suggest you to add a new data field in the arrtibute table, the field could contain the url for seperate flood location web map.

none for intersecting maps that are not included as layers in the App. I also don't see a way of filtering the results of the polygon selection (to specify desired weather event).

intersecting maps that are not included as layers in the App - you could either add the map through the Add Data Widget, or pre-config the Query Widget to establish the connection.

I also don't see a way of filtering the results - Attribute Table Widget, filter

If you require more flexibility, I'd recommend you to use the developer edition, you could also find some customized widget from Esri's GeoNet.
