Share a plan

There are multiple ways to share a plan in ArcGIS Urban. You can change the sharing settings of a plan to share it at different levels: with individual users, groups, users who belong to the organization, or everyone. You can export plan scenarios to a web scene or a web map. You can share a link to a plan, and you can embed it in your website.

Share a plan that you own

A plan is by default only accessible to the user who created it. Only this user can change the sharing settings. Complete the following steps to share a plan that you own:

  1. Select the plan you want to share in the view or in the search panel.

    The plan editor opens.

  2. Expand the drop-down menu named after the plan in the header and select Share plan.

    The plan configuration opens on the Sharing tab. Following the ArcGIS Online sharing terminology, you can configure the sharing level as well as the group sharing. To learn more about the ArcGIS Online sharing terminology, see Share items in the ArcGIS Online documentation.

  3. Choose from the following options in the Set sharing level section to configure the sharing level:
    • Owner—The plan is only accessible to you.
    • Organization—Share the plan with the users belonging to the same organization.
    • Everyone (public)—Share the plan with everyone.
      Note:
      • Before sharing a plan with everyone, you must check the Lock editing for non-owners check box in the Collaboration subsection to prevent nonowners from making changes to the plan.
      • Public plans are visible to everyone who has access to the urban model. See View an urban model to learn more.
  4. Optionally, choose from the following options in Collaboration > Group sharing to configure group sharing:
    • Share the plan with existing ArcGIS Online groups—Use the input field to search for groups. Select a group by clicking it. Click Share to share the plan with the groups listed in the Group sharing field.
    • Share the plan with individual ArcGIS Online users—Click the Groups drop-down menu and select the Users entry. Use the input field to search for users. Select a user by clicking it. Click Share to share the plan with the users listed in the Group sharing field. This create a group in the background that contains the users you searched for.
  5. Click the Return to plan button Back in the header.
  6. Click the Return to overview button Back in the header.
Note:

In addition to the plan, the user must have access to the urban model. See View an urban model to learn more.

Export a plan scenario to a web scene

You can export plan scenarios to a web scene. This allows you to use content generated in ArcGIS Urban in other GIS applications. When exporting a scenario to a web scene, the following are created in your ArcGIS Urban account:

  • A folder named after the plan
  • A hosted feature layer that contains the scenario data
  • A web map
  • A web scene

Complete the following steps to export a plan scenario to a web scene:

  1. Select the plan with the scenario you want to export.

    The plan editor opens.

  2. Use the scenario switcher in the center of the header to select the scenario in the plan.
  3. Expand the drop-down menu named after the plan in the header and select Export Scenario to web scene.

    The Export Scenario to web scene dialog box appears.

  4. Check the check box of the layers you want to export.
    • You can export future buildings with space-use type colors.
    • You can export parcels with the result of a suitability model (cumulative score as well as criteria score, weight, and value). See Assess suitability to learn how to create a suitability model.

  5. Click OK.

    Once the scenario is successfully exported, a dialog box with a link to the web scene appears.

  6. Do one of the following:
    • Click Done to close the Export Scenario to web scene dialog box and go back to the plan editor.
    • Click the link on the Export Scenario to web scene dialog box to open the exported web scene in Scene Viewer.

Embed a plan

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

  1. Click a plan in the view or find it in the search panel.

    The plan editor opens.

  2. Expand the drop-down menu named after the plan in the header and select Share plan.
  3. Browse to the Embed plan section.
  4. Use the options in the View subsection to configure the initial map view when opening the embedded plan.
  5. Check the check box in the Options subsection for a minimized search user interface of the embedded urban model.

    When checked, only the Details side panel is available. When unchecked, the Dashboard and the Discussion side panels also are available.

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

To embed your urban model in your website, see Embed an urban model.
