Share an urban model

The Sharing tab is the second tab in the data manager. You can configure who can view the urban model and who can edit the urban model, you can generate an iframe element that allows you to embed the urban model in your website, and you can export the urban model to a file geodatabase.

Note:

Only the urban model owner can edit the sharing settings.

Create design plans and projects

A user who fulfills all of the following requirements can create a design plan or project:

  • The user can view the urban model.
  • The user is signed in with an account that has an Urban license assigned.
  • The user is signed in with an account that has privileges to publish hosted feature layers.

See Workflow accessibility for additional information about which urban workflow requires which ArcGIS Online privileges. Access to a design plan or project must be configured directly at the plan or project level.

Embed an urban model

You can embed an urban model in your website through an iframe element. To generate an iframe element for this purpose, complete the following steps:

  1. Click the Manage button Settings button at the right of the header in the overview.
  2. On the Sharing tab, browse to the Embed urban model section.
  3. Use the options in the View subsection to configure the initial map view when opening the embedded urban model.
  4. Check the check box in the Options subsection for a minimized search user interface of the embedded urban model.

    When checked, the Projects, Plans, and Indicators buttons below the search bar are hidden.

  5. Copy the iframe element from the Embed iframe subsection and embed it in your website's code.

Export the urban model to a file geodatabase

You can export the database of your urban model to a file geodatabase. The export includes types, layers, indicators, metrics, and plans and projects that are stored in the urban database. Use the exported file geodatabase as a template to create an urban model. Complete the following steps to export your urban database:

  1. Click the Manage button Settings button to the right of the header in the overview.
  2. On the Sharing tab, browse to the Export Urban database section.
  3. Click Export.
  4. On the dialog box, provide a name for the file geodatabase that will be created on export and click Export.

    Once the urban database is successfully exported, a dialog box with a link to the file geodatabase appears.

  5. Do one of the following:
    • Click Done to close the Export Urban database dialog box and go back to the Sharing tab of the data manager.
    • Click the link on the Export Urban database dialog box to open a new browser tab and go to the ArcGIS Online item page of the file geodatabase.
