"Using ArcGIS Online, you can:
- Explore data for many digital worlds seamlessly in both 2D and 3D maps—for example using ArcGIS Explorer, the free 3D application for ArcGIS.
- Create your own digital worlds in 2D and 3D by combining ArcGIS Online services with your local data and services from ArcGIS Server, ArcIMS, Open Geospatial Consortium WMS services, and KML Services.
- Embed ArcGIS Online services into your own maps and applications and share the results with others.
- Add user tasks from your own secure servers and fuse them with services from ArcGIS Online and other servers—for example, visibility modeling, proximity search, or demographic analysis."
