ArcGIS 10.2, ESRI Maps for MS Office Why a heatmap that was created in Excel and looks fine and is still fine on a preview of a map if I publish it it ArcGIS Online but turns into black points if I open it in ArcGIS Online map viewer ?

It is what I like It's What I have

  • Are you publishing a vector or raster format? – artwork21 Nov 8 '13 at 13:46
  • I only choose "To publish" in Excel and that's all – laechoppe Nov 9 '13 at 19:51

This is expected behavior. The ESRI Maps for Office help references this:

Heat map layers and layers that are clustered cannot be shared to ArcGIS Online as a layer, but can be shared as part of a map. In the ArcGIS.com Map Viewer, the heat map layer displays as a point layer instead of rendering as a heat map.
