ArcGIS is advanced software for spatial analysis, data management, and mapping. As the target user is knowledgeable in both content and tool affordances, there is a learning curve for a layperson, certainly a student. As well, free public accounts have limited capabilities compared to a subscription organizational account. With this in mind, the navigation throughout the core site is intuitive, but some search links take the user outside of ArcGIS and it can be difficult to return. Maps can be copied as an image, printed, shared through a public link or created app, embedded in a website/blog, or directly shared through Facebook and Twitter. Smartphone and tablet apps are available.
