At Esri UK Annual Conference 2014 With 90% of Council data having a spatial element, either an address or location on a map, the provision of spatial information is a trusted and valuable service within Wiltshire Council. With the ever expanding need for spatial data across the business coupled with pressures to make more savings across the authority, it is essential we maximise the use of our existing contracts, join up and share spatial data across business areas internally and externally and strive to make the best business decisions possible for our customers via GIS.

  • 7. The Process Workshops Confirmed the apps required Confirmed the domains needed Configured the apps Trained staff Created test plans with an agreed testing period Follow up sessions feedback, changes made and retested Go live
  • 8. Create Domains for App in Catalogue Enter the SVC account details including titles and tags and store credentials with the service item Create a blank layer with required fields in Catalogue Link the domains to the layers fields in Catalogue Make an MXD containing your required layers and style it as appropriate Add Item (this adds the service online) In the Map tab, search for the layer and add the layer from the list Choose the basemaps, save and share then choosing an app template Make the web app, choose the edit template, publish, save and publish Login to and add a new item to the web and paste in the URL, changing the server name to the Wiltshire alias Login to ArcGIS server manager and copy the relevant rest end point of the feature server Publish your MXD to the secure folder Go into the new app, and share it!
