Add data from SharePoint

Esri Maps for SharePoint works directly with your organization's SharePoint data, allowing you to use spatially enabled content within your SharePoint site and add it to the Esri Maps Web Part. Adding data from SharePoint is a quick and easy way to add content to your map to complement your existing SharePoint data. For example, you may have SharePoint data showing proposed store locations to add to your map of household income census data to visually analyze trends.

With Esri Maps for SharePoint, you can add spatially enabled lists containing addresses or place-names, or lists containing coordinate data, to your map. Once added, they become layers in your map.

Only layers that are added while the Esri Maps Web Part is in Edit mode are persisted in the map.

  1. Sign in to ArcGIS if you are not already signed in.
  2. From the Add data menu, select from SharePoint.

    A list of spatially enabled SharePoint lists displays.

  3. Select a list to add to the map.
  4. Click the All Items entry for that list.
  5. Click Add.

    A layer containing the data is added to the map and is listed in the Contents pane.
