What is ArcGIS Web AppBuilder?

ArcGIS Web AppBuilder is an intuitive what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) application that allows you to build 2D and 3D web apps without writing a single line of code. It includes powerful tools to configure fully featured HTML apps. As you add your map and tools, you can see them in the app, and use them right away.

Key features

You can do the following with ArcGIS Web AppBuilder:

  • Create HTML/JavaScript apps that run on any device.
  • Build the apps you need using ready-to-use widgets.
  • Customize the look of your apps with configurable themes.
  • Host your apps online or run them on your own server.
  • Create custom app templates.

Using the 3D app in Web AppBuilder requires a desktop web browser that supports WebGL.

Web AppBuilder allows you to create apps by accessing workflow tabs including Theme , Map, Widget, and Attribute.


To use Web AppBuilder, you must have a Creator or GIS Professional user type and privileges to create apps in your ArcGIS organization.
