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.
- You can now select sketch features in the Properties pane in addition to using the Select by rectangle and Select by lasso tools. When styling stamps, lines, polygons, rectangles and circles, and text, you can choose symbols from the Recent symbols list. You can also add titles and pop-ups to multiple sketch features at a time, and you can now copy sketch features to a new sketch layer.
- When styling layers, you can now browse for and add custom web styles. You can also filter symbols using a keyword search.
- You can now save media layers as items, preserving layer properties such as georeferencing information, blending, effects, and visibility settings. You can also add existing media layer items to a map.
- In the Layers pane, you can now search for layers by their titles, allowing you to find layers that have been added to the map.
- When working with aggregated data, you can now set the scale threshold. This allows you to choose the scale at which features are displayed individually instead of in clusters or bins.
- When viewing pop-ups, features from multiple layers are now displayed in the order they are displayed in the map. Previously, features were displayed in the order they were returned from the server.
- Box plots in a series can now be sorted. The default sort order is X-axis ascending.
- You can explore dynamic imagery with the Image collection explorer in Map Viewer. You can browse the images used to create the imagery layer, visualize the footprints of the images, and see additional metadata about those images. You can add the individual image to the web map as a separate imagery layer and save it in your ArcGIS Online organization as an item. These new image layers can be used in subsequent raster analysis or in another web map.
- 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.

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