With the advance of web mapping services and Web technology, creating and publishing high-performing, modern-looking Web maps has become easier and rich with options. This workshop teaches the basics of how to build attractive, sophisticated internet mapping applications using the lightweight, browser based ArcGIS Server JavaScript API. Topics include designing and publishing web mapping services using ArcGIS Server; consuming ArcGIS map services using the ArcGIS Server REST API and Dojo Javascript library; integrating functionality (queries, geoprocessing, etc.) for more interactive applications; and tools and techniques for rapid application development. This Workshop is geared toward GIS analysts and others who want to create rich internet mapping applications to publish GIS content throughout an organization or to the public via the Internet.

 

Attendees do not need to be highly experienced programmers but a basic understanding of HTML and familiarity with JavaScript are recommended.

 

Workshop format: Approximately 50% lecture, 50% application development.

 

Objectives
By attending this workshop, participants will:

 

1.  Develop an understanding of web mapping design using ArcGIS server and the Javascript API.
2.  Develop strategies for authoring basemaps including design considerations, types of basemaps, and map caching.
3.  Learn core concepts in developing web mapping application using ArcGIS Server, Javascript, and the Dojo Javascript framework
4.  Develop strategies for integrating multiple ArcGIS Server map services in a web application for the visualization and query of spatial data.
5.  Learn about integrating specialized tasks and tools including geocoding, geometry operations, and geoprocessing tools.
6.  Learn basic customizaton of a web mapping application using the Dojo framework and Map Widgets.
