AASG Geothermal Data Project
When deploying a web service using ArcGIS publishing service, there are a few specifics that need to be considered when constructing the WFS and WMS Capabilites in the ArcGIS deployment wizard. This post is geared toward publishing a service for the AASG Geothermal Data Project, but the following practices are similar when deploying any USGIN-specification services using ArcGIS publishing products.
In the ArcGIS service publishing wizard or "Add New Service" wizard, you will be promted to choose Capabilities. Capabilites for both WMS and WFS are provided in AASG Geothermal Data Project services.
This blog is designed to encompass technical questions and troubleshooting for deploying and hosting USGIN services, particularly related to the AASG State Geothermal Data Project. Topics covered will included basic deployment procedures with WFS and WMS specifics, custom capablilites, handling large volume datasets, service and layers naming conventions, URIs, hosting online related files, metadata in the USGIN repository, and validating WFS and WMS services. The technical team at AZGS has encountered a need for such discussion as individual institutions and states begin hosting thier own USGIN AASG Geothermal Data Project services.
