Link – ArcWeb and PHP – Controlling visible layers

Walt Eis has posted a simple method to control what layers display on your ArcWeb Public Services. Walt has really taken off on ArcWeb over the past few weeks, with many great examples on how to use PHP and ArcWeb together.

Walt Posts Part 4 of his ArcWeb PHP Tutorial

So far we have a map with points, and we can zoom in and out. The next step will be adding a pan function.

Walt finishes up his tutorial on ArcWeb Services using PHP today with to pan. Hopefully everyone will let Walk know what they thought of the tutorial, I know I enjoyed it. Maybe if ESRI ever gets a SourceForge/GotDotNet type site up and running, Walt can contribute his code.

“If you’ve been following along, you should now be able to display a map showing points that you defined and stored in a database. Now we’ll look at how to zoom the map using a small control on the web page.”

This could be the first zoom example in PHP I’ve seen on the internet.

Walt Eis Starts Creating a PHP ArcWeb Mashup

Link – ArcWeb Public Services – Part 0.1

There are several things I still need to figure out, like how to zoom and pan, but my first impressions are pretty positive. I was able to take the data I used for my Google Maps sample project and use it in my ArcWeb sample without too much trouble. As Andrea did, I’m using a simple text file, but will likely end up using a MySQL database for my location data. It seems that not all the map data advertised on ESRI’s sales site is available right now, but my understanding from the FAQs is that more will be available later.

Looks like people are finally starting to create mashups using Public ArcWeb Services. Walt has made some headway putting points on his map and is now starting to look at creating some more functionality (pan/zoom/etc). I’m sure Walt’s been using it, but anyone who wants to learn more about ArcWeb can take a look at the ArcWeb Online Help or check out the ESRI Support Forums.

Walt’s ArcWeb demo is located here. Compare this to his previous Google Maps efforts.

Using ArcWeb Services with PHP

Link – Using ArcWeb with PHP

Andrea Rosso has posted a quickstart guide to using ArcWeb Services with PHP. He goes into great detail about how to accomplish this so if you have been in interested in getting started with Public ArcWeb Services, but aren’t a Java, JSP or .NET fan, now you’ve go no excuse. Of course as with everything PHP it isn’t quite as easy as it sounds, but anyone with intermediate knowledge of web servers and programming should be able to follow the instructions.
