How Does ArcGIS Maps for Sharepoint Work?
As mentioned already, ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint is a web mapping solution that allows organizations to embed dynamic, interactive maps directly into their SharePoint websites.

From there, you can click a point or are on a map to see all the relevant Sharepoint documents related to that location. That means that whenever you click that feature, you’ll be able to see any documents that you tagged to it.

It also includes a variety of features that allow users to easily access, visualize, and interact with geographic information.
