Create tours

With ArcGIS Earth for mobile, you can create a tour with geotagged photos and placemarks, play them by sequence, record a video of the tour, and share it with others.

Create a tour from an album

Create a tour with geotagged photos in your album, showing what you have seen or where you have been along a trip on a 3D globe.

Create a tour

To create a tour, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the Toolbox button Toolbox at the bottom of the screen and select the Tour tool Tour.
  2. ArcGIS Earth supports the Create Tour from Album option Create Tour from Album and the ability to display geotagged photos on the globe. To add a photo, select an existing one from your album or take a new one. Photos without location information cannot be added to a tour. You can add up to 10 photos for a tour.
  3. Tap Done to finish creating a tour.

This feature requires permission to access your device's camera and photos.

Edit a tour

Tours can be managed in Tours My Tours. To edit a tour, you can change the name of it, insert more photos or placemarks, update the order of the photos or placemarks for display, or customize the color of the path for the tour. Remember to tap Save to save your edits.

Preview a tour

Tap Play Play to preview and fly through a tour. While playing, you can pause, change the playing speed, or exit the preview.

Share a tour as video

Tap Share Share to start recording a video of the tour. You can choose to display or hide the watermark. The video can be recorded in Portrait or Landscape mode. Interaction with the globe is temporarily blocked when the video is recording.

After the recording is done, select Save to generate a video in the album. You may want to share it later through other apps, or share it with your colleagues, friends, and family.
