Adding a ESRI Geoservice coming from APOLLO Essentials to ArcGIS

Hi guys,

 

perhaps someone can help me with my issue. I wanted to add an ESRI geoserivce that is coming from APOLLO Essentials to ArcMap

 

What I did so far:

  1. I have created a new service
  2. Then I added two raster files (ecw)
  3. Next step was to enable ESRI Geoservices (TileMatrix = ESRIcompatible) for both files

If I double klick on the Geoservice entry I am able to select both of the hosted files and add them to ArcGIS Map online.

 

But I am not able to connect to the service using ArcMap 10.2.2.

Here are they steps that I used to add the service to ArcMap:

  1. Add Data > GIS Servers > Add ArcGIS Server > Use GIS services
  2. Server URL as given in the Apollo AdminConsole
  3. No user name and password

I am able to connect to the service but I do not get any content listed. If I do the same with e.g. this URL everything works as expected:

https://geoweb.bcogc.ca/arcgis/rest/services

 

Cheers and thanks for your help

Fritz

What's the version of your Apollo essential? 

Also have you tried the latest ArcGIS Apollo connector tool, which will allo ArcGIS to explore Apollo essential catalog?

Haiyan,

 

thanks for yopur answer. We are using the Core within APOLLO 2016 EP4. Unfortunately we need to use ESRI Geoservices to connect to APOLLO. The installation of the ECW-Pluging is not allowed. And there is another WebCompenent that can only consume services from ArcGIS-Server.

This means: we need to know how to access the Geoservices from APOLLO in the ESRI world.

 

Cheers

Fritz

Hi HonZa,

 

it look like there needs to been some fundamental work in the ESRI-Geoservices implementation of APOLLO. The implementation was done for ArcGIS Online JS API which depend only on a subset of the Esri Geoservices protocol.

 

We are have now moved to WMTS which does the job quite well if not even better.

 

Cheers

Fritz
