LocalMaps Categories make it easier for others to find content in your Gallery. They essentially allow users to filter down the maps and apps visible based on a keyword that you, the administrator define. This section allows you to configure what categories are available in the left-hand panel of the gallery page.

Categories are based on the item tags you create in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS. What this means is that for a Map to appear in a Category you set, the item in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS must also have that Category name entered as a Tag. For more information on how to configure Tags see Esri Item Details help.

Adding a Category

To create a categories for your Gallery, enter a keyword (that correlates to the tag you set in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS) and click Add. The new category should be added to the list of categories and will appear in the Categories panel of the Gallery page.

Editing / deleting a Category

To edit an existing category, click on the textbox you wish to edit within the Category list. Edits will be automatically saved when you click elsewhere on the page. A green message box will also appear in the bottom right indicating Data updated. To delete a category, click Delete next to a category. Again, a green confirmation box will appear.

Ordering Category List

To reorder the categories list, click the dotted icon to the left of the category name. You can then drag and drop the category to another position in the list.

You can create and share a link to a specific category by appending ?c=<CATEGORYNAME> to the gallery URL.
