ArcGIS Online for UCSC
Daniel Story | Spring, 2022
As a UCSC affiliate, you have access to a UCSC ArcGIS Online account, which opens up some additional features in apps StoryMaps and the ArcGIS Online mapping builder.
If don't yet have an ArcGIS account, simply head to arcgis.com or storymaps.arcgis.com, input "ucsc" as your organization, and login with your Gold password. The login page will look something like this...
If you have an existing account and have been using your Gold login to access it, you can keep logging in that way.
If you have an existing account that existed before we switched to Gold login, for the moment, you will need to login as you have been, with the specific ArcGIS login you created. That process looks something like this...
Additionally, it is useful to know that ESRI treats ArcGIS Online as the parent online platform. If you select the Content tab in ArcGIS Online, you’ll see a list of all the datasets, maps, and StoryMaps you’ve created. You can click on a StoryMap to go directly to the StoryMaps interface and start editing. (You can also go directly to the StoryMaps app.) The wrinkle is that when you are in the StoryMaps interface, there are no obvious links to take you back to ArcGIS Online. For that, I find it is best simply to open a new tab and go to arcgis.com.
The land on which we gather is the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe. The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, comprised of the descendants of indigenous people taken to missions Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast, is today working hard to restore traditional stewardship practices on these lands and heal from historical trauma.
The land acknowledgement used at UC Santa Cruz was developed in partnership with the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band Chairman and the Amah Mutsun Relearning Program at the UCSC Arboretum.
