Is it possible to create hyperlinks for data stored in a local drive in an ArcGIS Online web map?
No, it is not possible to create hyperlinks for data stored in a local drive in an ArcGIS Online web map. This known limitation in ArcGIS Online is designed to prevent any compromises in privacy and security.
A workaround for this limitation is to upload the desired data to a file-hosting website or a local server, and hyperlink the data via a URL to the uploaded data in the targeted ArcGIS Online web map. Since there is no direct functionality that creates hyperlinks, pop-ups are used to display the URLs instead.
The instructions provided describe how to create a pop-up that displays the URL of the uploaded data. The data in this example is an image. The URL configured in a pop-up serves as a 'hyperlink' in an ArcGIS Online web map.
