Connecting an ArcGIS layer source

Both private and public layer sources from ESRI ArcGIS can be used as a canvas for mapping in Aphex. Each Aphex Location will accept up to 10 ArcGIS layer sources.

Here's how to connect an ArcGIS layer to an Aphex Location:

  • Create a Map Space Location in Aphex

  • Select your new Location and click 'Add Layer'

  • Paste in the URL of your ArcGIS layer and click 'Validate'

  • If it's a private layer, enter in your valid user credentials and click 'Connect'

  • Confirm the layer details

The layer will now appear on the map.

Find your ArcGIS layer URL

The ArcGIS URL will commonly appear in a format similar to the below;


The URL should be the page URL of the Item Details pages:

Supported ArcGIS Layers

At this stage, Aphex supports the following ArcGIS layer types:

  • Feature Layers

  • Map Image Layers

If you are unsure of your layer type, this can be found on the Item Details page in ArcGIS.

💡 Currently, any custom styling configured on a layer in ArcGIS will not show in Aphex.

Manage ArcGIS Integration

You can view and remove all connected ArcGIS accounts from the Integrations page.

Disconnecting an account will remove all ArcGIS layers accessed through the credentials. Only Project Admins can create or remove connected sources.
