Link multiple map views

Adding multiple maps to your SharePoint page allows you to see spatially related content side by side. You can synchronize multiple maps so that you can use them simultaneously to illustrate a scenario. For example, you may link a map of annual precipitation in the U.S. with a map of U.S. flood hazard areas and compare the two maps at the same extent.

When you enable map view linking, all maps on your SharePoint page will automatically link to the currently active view.

The active view controls all views linked to it. Linked map views will automatically update their extent to match the active map view.

Use the active view to drive the navigation. If you click another map while linking is turned on, that map automatically becomes the new active view and the views of linked maps on the page are synchronized to it.

To link multiple maps, do the following:

  1. Ensure that the page is in edit mode.
  2. On the ArcGIS for SharePoint web part, click Edit web part Edit.

    The ArcGIS for SharePoint pane appears, displaying configuration options for the web part.

  3. Under Map Controls, turn on the Synchronize map view toggle button.

    The map is ready to be linked.
