The Esri training team ran a tip a day in June and have pulled them together in a blog article. A couple of the desktop ones are things I’d used recently on a project to make life easier. The list is well worth a look, there might be something that makes things quicker or easier for you.

With the latest release of ArcGIS Online you now automatically get access to free high quality basemaps for Great Britain. We created the new basemaps using the latest Ordnance Survey Open Data products. There are five new basemaps, all designed to be used as background mapping and provide a seamless map view from national level to street level with a consistent style.
Ordnance Survey has recently released a new range of Open Data products. This post will focus on how you can use the OS Open Rivers and OS Open Roads datasets. They provide detailed views of the watercourses and road network in Great Britain and are supplied for free as open data. Both datasets work well to simply bring context to your map. I will also show you how you can use the data for effective analysis by setting up a network.
Back in March, Smart Mapping was added to ArcGIS Online. One of the aims is to make it easier to produce effective maps of your data, but it also adds sophisticated style options to ArcGIS Online. If you haven’t looked at it yet, or have only used a few bits, it’s worth taking a look through the series of blog posts on it.
