How to Work with Published GIS Services
The ArcGIS Server REST API provides a simple, powerful, and open Web interface to GIS Services hosted by ArcGIS Server. It's easy to program against GIS Services using the REST interface. All resources and operations exposed by the REST API are accessible through a URL for each GIS service published with ArcGIS Server.
The ArcGIS Server SOAP API is an XML-structured language for communicating with ArcGIS Server web services using the SOAP standard.
Open Geospatial Consortium supported interfaces include:
- WMS for serving maps
- WFS for sharing and updating features
- WCS for serving imagery and rasters
Openly publish geographic information to the Google Earth and Google Maps user community. Also, use KML to deliver rich geographic information via georeferenced HTML.
