Configuring geometry services

The ArcGIS Mapping Geometry Services list determines the geometry service endpoint used by ArcGIS for SharePoint to perform geometric operations. This is used, for instance, by the Find Nearby tool and by the ArcGIS Map Web Part to project list items to spatial references other than WGS84 (WKID 4326) and Web Mercator (WKID 102100).

The number of geometry services included in the list is static. You should not add or remove items to or from this list. However, you can edit the existing item to specify any ArcGIS Server geometry service. The following table describes the columns in the list:

Column

Description

Title

The identifier for the geometry service list item.

Url

The uniform resource locator (URL) to the ArcGIS Server geometry service.

If ArcGIS for SharePoint is unable to connect to the specified endpoint, it will attempt to use the ArcGIS Online geometry service.
