Esri UK Online Services are now available to all without the requirement for online registration and user credentials. You can access the new services directly from within ArcGIS Online and across the ArcGIS Platform. For more information about our new public services please see here for free map services and here for free locators.
These services replace our existing ones hosted on datahub.esriuk.com. The Datahub services are no longer being updated and will be switched off on the 1st July 2016. If you are using these services please plan your migration to our new services so that you have the most up to date data and have migrated ahead of their retirement.
The benefits of the new services are:
- They use the latest OS OpenData products including OS Open Map – Local and OS Open Names
- The new services are updated regularly (Esri UK are no longer updating the Datahub services)
- They are available out of the box in the global basemap gallery (in ArcGIS Online, ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro)
- They are free to use
- As the new services are hosted in ArcGIS Online they are scalable and can cope with peak demands in your services
- They require no login credentials to use them
