Web Based Applications
Web developers can use the North Dakota GIS Hub REST interface to determine the URLs to use within their application. For example, to utilize one or more layers from the All_Geology service:
- Click on All_Geology
- Paste the resulting URL shown in the browser into the application code, e.g., http://ndgishub.nd.gov/ArcGIS/rest/services/All_Geology/MapServer
The services with names beginning with Basemap_ are cached, a.k.a. tiled services. Although these can be used in ArcGIS Desktop they are designed for use by web-based applications. If one of these services are used in an application, make sure that your code indicates that these are cached, e.g., in a Flex application this is shown as type="tiled". In a non-tiled service, e.g., All_Geology, the code is type="dynamic".
