Redlands, California- ESRI will host an online live training seminar this month that will show how expanded support for Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC), Web service standards at ArcGIS Server 9.3 will foster greater collaboration when working with geographic information system (GIS) data and maps.

Leveraging OGC Capabilities in ArcGIS Server 9.3 will air October 23, 2008, at www.esri.com/lts. Participants can tune in to the no-cost seminar at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. (Pacific daylight time).

ArcGIS Server 9.3 software, released earlier this year, now includes support for publishing GIS vector data using the Web Feature Service (WFS) standard and raster data using the Web Coverage Service (WCS) standard. It also includes enhanced Web Map Service (WMS) functionality. ESRI's support for these standards promotes interoperability on the Web that allows GIS professionals to more widely share maps, images, and data with colleagues, enabling faster and more efficient decision making.

The seminar's presenters will provide an overview of OGC Web service standards and the role these standards play in Web GIS. They will then discuss how support for these services is integrated into the ArcGIS Server framework as service capabilities that can be easily enabled and configured using ArcGIS Server Manager or ArcCatalog.

The presenters will also explain Web service fundamentals and workflows for WFS-, WCS-, and WMS-enabled services and demonstrate how easy it is to publish maps and data using ArcGIS Server. These and other OGC services can then be consumed by a wide range of ESRI and third-party OGC-enabled client applications such as ArcMap, ArcGIS Explorer, Gaia, and Google Earth. For example, a WCS service can provide Web access to raster datasets, allowing a client application, such as ArcMap, to perform spatial analysis and geoprocessing directly with Web datasets.

The seminar also will cover two more advanced OGC Web service topics. One will be support for WMS Styled Layer Descriptors (SLDs), which allow clients to display map layers using a variety of symbologies or styles. The second will be Transactional Web Feature Service (WFS-T), which permits a WFS service to support OGC client-based editing of enterprise geodatabase vector data.
Seminar participants should have a basic familiarity with using and administering ArcGIS Server including knowledge about publishing and managing GIS services. An understanding of basic server and Web service concepts is also helpful.

A broadband Internet connection and an ESRI Global Account are needed to watch the seminar. Creating a global account is easy and free: visit www.esri.com/lts, click Login, and register your name and address. A few weeks after the live presentation, the seminar will be archived and available for viewing on the ESRI Training and Education Web site.
