View pop-ups (Map Viewer)

Pop-ups contain information about features and images in map layers, such as hiking trails, land cover types, or unemployment rates. Pop-ups can include attachments, images, charts, text, field lists, and related records, and they can link to external web pages.

The default pop-up appearance for a feature layer—if the layer owner has not configured it—is a table of attributes and values. The layer owner can save a new configuration, which is why the pop-ups in a map can display relevant information without additional steps by the map author. The default pop-up appearance for an imagery layer is the pixel values.

There are multiple options for viewing and navigating a pop-up. To collapse the pop-up display and view only the title, click Collapse Collapse. To expand the pop-up display and view all contents, click Expand Expand. To dock the pop-up display to the top of the map, click Dock Dock. Click Undock Undock to display pop-ups near their associated features or pixels.


You can click Zoom to Zoom to on a feature's pop-up to zoom in to the feature on the map. If you have the appropriate privileges, you can add the location information from a feature pop-up to a route layer. Click Get directions Directions to add the location as a stop in a route.

For a particular map, the map owner can reconfigure the feature layer pop-ups. Map authors define the list of visible and hidden fields and how the information is presented. For example, they can show a simple list of attributes or provide an interactive experience using custom-formatted text, charts, and images. To learn more about designing and configuring pop-ups for feature layers, see Configure pop-ups.

Click Select feature Select feature to zoom to and select the related feature. This will also open the related record's pop-up out of the related records browser.
