Good morning everyone,

Feature Rest URL Links
If you are experiencing performance issues with DataMiner within your ArcGIS Software on the network, another alternative is to add the feature item's REST URL. OTIS-GIS has compiled a list of commonly used feature items along with a guide on how to incorporate these Rest URLs in your software. (Please note: it is recommended to download a copy of this file and store locally for use when not connected to the DEP network) Click here to access file.<>

ArcGIS Online Update: HTTP and Browser Support
On the evening of Tuesday, December 8th, ArcGIS Online will receive its last quarterly update for 2020. In addition to a handful of improvements, this update will remove support for HTTP content across ArcGIS Online. The DEP ArcGIS Online organization was already updated earlier this year to only support HTTPS, so we expect this to have little to no impact for our users. However, if you notice that content in your maps/apps/StoryMaps has become inaccessible following this update, please check that any URLs used for that content are referencing HTTPS, rather than HTTP. This may include map layers from external sources, images referenced via URL, embedded web pages or other external content.

Additionally, this updates marks the official end of support for both Internet Explorer and the legacy version of the Edge Browser. Users who view ArcGIS Online content using these browsers will now see a warning message, explaining they are using an unsupported browser. Please use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or the latest version of Edge (Chromium) for all ArcGIS related web content. You can determine if you have the correct version of Edge by checking the icon. A blue-green wave means you have the latest Chromium version of Edge, which will support ArcGIS Online.
