Those still a little confused about the whole ArcGIS Online product (including me) might want to join the live training seminar about ArcGIS Online.

Introduction to ArcGIS Online

ArcGIS Online is a new family of Web mapping services from ESRI that provides map and globe layers, such as high resolution imagery, streets, topographic maps, and more that enable you to quickly jump-start your GIS activities. In this seminar, you’ll learn how to access these layers inside ArcMap and ArcGIS Explorer. The presenter explains how ArcGIS Server technology is used in ArcGIS Online as well as the relationship between ArcGIS Online and ArcWeb Services. Additionally, you’ll learn how you can access maps from ArcGIS Online when you’re not connected to the Web and how you can contribute your own content to ArcGIS Online.

The seminar will run tomorrow (Thursday, July 19, 2007) at 9:00 AM PDT, 11:00 AM PDT and 3:00 PM PDT.
