ArcGIS Online

You can now use your GatorLink credentials to log into ArcGIS online (AGOL)! For access to AGOL, please choose below whether you are a student, instructor, or doing UF research.

Students

Is your instructor using ArcGIS Online for your class? Then follow these instructions:

Step 1: Sign INTO AGOL with YOUR GatorLink credentials

Sign into AGOL with your GatorLink username and password:

http://ufl.maps.arcgis.com > click Sign In > choose “University of Florida” > enter GatorLink Credentials

This will automatically give you AGOL access with the “user” role and a credit budget of 1000.

Step 2: ASK TO Have your role elevated

Ask your instructor to upgrade you to the Students role.

You will need to provide them with your username, which should be your gatorlink username + _ufl. After you are elevated, you will unlock AGOL features that allow you to spend credits.

What are credits? And do I need them? 

Instructors

  1. Create an ArcGIS Online login for yourself using your Gatorlink credentials. Go to:
    http://ufl.maps.arcgis.com > click Sign In > choose “University of Florida” > enter GatorLink Credentials
  2. Have your role elevated. After you have logged into AGOL at least once, ask your campus unit point of contact to elevate you to the Instructor role. If you are not sure who your Point of Contact is, then please contact GeoPlan.
  3. After your role is elevated, you can invite your students and give them access (see common tasks below).
