This module aims at giving students practice in publishing GIS services using ArcGIS for Server technologies. ArcGIS for Server is the solution proposed by Esri to share GIS resources over the web. The ArcGIS for Server deployment options will be introduced together with the supported web services capabilities, the available server-client communication protocols, cloud-computing paradigm and existing efforts dedicated to standards development in GIS. The following geospatial web services will be discussed in details: map service, caching service, feature service, geoprocessing service and image services.
ArcGIS Online platform will serve as example of online cloud-computing application helping users to both search published GI resources and to share their authoritative resources as web services.

For this module, we use ArcGIS Desktop, which students can license without any extra costs.

There are no upcoming events.
