Connecting via ArcGIS Online

G-EGD creates a URL containing connection information that you can use this URL to access Maxar imagery in ArcGIS Online.

You can also connect to G-EGD using the ArcGIS desktop application. See Connecting via ArcGIS Desktop and Global Enhanced GEOINT Delivery (G-EGD) with ArcGIS User Guide.

  4. Open the ArcGIS web map viewer (maps.arcgis.com/home/webmap/viewer.html) and log in to your account.
