What's new

The February 2024 update includes improvements to sketch layers and web styles in Map Viewer, along with 3D basemaps and tiles layers in Scene Viewer and other enhancements and new functionality throughout the ArcGIS Online website. Highlights are provided below. For more information, see the What's new in ArcGIS Online blog article.



  • Add integrated mesh 3D tiles layers to your scene.
  • Modify integrated mesh scene layers directly in Scene Viewer. Cut holes, mask, or flatten areas to combine it with other layers.
  • Set a refresh interval and see the latest data changes while your scene is open.
  • Make your edits more precise and concise by using constraints.
  • New 3D Basemaps are added and moved out of beta.
  • Apply a visibility range to voxel scene layers.
  • You can now add custom request parameters to all scene layers.
  • The contrast is increased to improve the accessibility of Scene Viewer.

App configuration

  • ArcGIS Dashboards includes several updates. Dashboard authors can now add splash screen and info windows to their dashboards to promote their organization's identity, convey important information or communicate updates to their users. You can now set the time zone of your dashboard to process and display temporal data using the device time zone or a specific time zone. In addition, when configuring elements, dynamic text can now be inserted in more locations such as the element title and description and now include more information such as the date created, owner, and title or the locale and time zone information. For more information, see What's new in ArcGIS Dashboards.
  • One new widget is available in ArcGIS Experience Builder. The Select widget allows you to select features using attribute selection, interactive map selection, and spatial selection. Other enhancements include the Filter widget supporting group filters, the Analysis widget supporting raster analysis tools, and new URL parameters for the Map and Search widgets. For more information, see What's new in Experience Builder.
  • ArcGIS Instant Apps has a new app template and several updates. The new Manager template allows end users to locate, review, and filter records on a map or table and modify data in editable feature layers. The language switcher is now available in 3D Viewer, Atlas, Attachment Viewer, Basic, and Slider so you can publish a multilingual app that combines your translated custom text and user interface translations for supported languages. New capabilities, including an Oriented Imagery Viewer in Sidebar, are now supported. For more information, see What's new in Instant Apps.

Content management

  • The Content page has been improved. The following are some of the changes in the refreshed page:
    • The filter, search string, and view you apply to a tab in the Content page (such as My content) persist when you move to another tab (such as My organization).
    • You can now view item details displayed in a panel from the Content page to help determine what items meet your needs. You can also see what layers and fields are in feature and table layers from the details panel.
    • The option to add an item to your list of favorites is available on the details panel as well as in the More options menu Options for each item.
  • You can add 3D tiles packages (.3tz) to your organization and publish 3D tiles layers from them. These layers can be added to ArcGIS Pro 3.2 or later or, if the layers are integrated mesh layers, you can add them to Scene Viewer.
  • For information about improvements in ArcGIS Arcade, see the Arcade release notes.
  • ArcGIS Data Pipelines is out of beta and available for general use. For information about new and improved functionality, see What's new in the ArcGIS Data Pipelines help.


  • Members can now manage files from the Manage files page located on their Notebook tab in the Manage drop-down menu.
  • Default administrators or those with administrative privileges can now transfer files in a notebook workspace using the Manage files page.

Spatial analysis

  • Map services are now supported as feature inputs for analysis. For a complete list of supported inputs, see Perform analysis (Map Viewer).
  • Several tools now have a Draw input features button that can be used to interactively create an input layer. Drawing input features creates a sketch layer that can be saved in the web map.
  • Find Point Clusters includes three new parameters, Time Field, Search Time Interval, and Search Time Unit, that allow you to use time, along with distance, to identify clusters when the Clustering Method is Defined distance (DBSCAN) or Multi-scale (OPTICS).
  • Geodesic Viewshed has two new viewshed settings parameters, Vertical error and Refractivity coefficient, and four new observer parameters, Horizontal start angle, Horizontal end angle, Vertical upper angle, and Vertical lower angle.
  • Surface Parameters has a new parameter, Input analysis mask raster or features, which limits analysis to specific locations of interest within the input surface raster.
  • The Zonal Statistics raster function has four new options for the Statistics Type parameter: Majority count, Majority percentage, Minority count, and Minority percentage.
  • You can now create and edit raster functions from Map Viewer with the Raster function editor. Open existing raster function templates or create a new one for your analysis from the map.
  • The following analysis tools are now available in Map Viewer:
    • Calculate Composite Index combines multiple numeric variables to create a single index variable, also known as a composite indicator.
    • Derive Stream as Line generates stream line features from an input surface raster with no prior sink or depression filling required. Specific locations for sinks or depressions can be provided. An optional accumulation threshold can be specified.
    • Derive Stream as Raster generates a stream raster from an input surface raster with no prior sink or depression filling required. Specific locations for sinks or depressions can be provided. An optional accumulation threshold can be specified.
    • Stream Link assigns unique values to sections of a raster linear network between intersections.
  • The following raster functions are now available in Map Viewer:
    • Gradient function calculates the gradient along the X, Y, XY, or a given dimension.
    • Region Pixel Count function identifies connected regions with the same pixel value and returns an image layer containing values for the number of pixels in the regions.

Accounts and administration

  • Default administrators and those with administrative privileges can now bulk delete members, transferring or deleting multiple members' content at one time.
