Is it possible to extract gis data (features, records, geometry, etc) from arcgis rest/ soap/ Mapservers? 

For example: ProxyServices/DDOTBaseMapProxy (MapServer)

can i extract the first layer

and make it a shapefile/ feature class, etc?

Thanks!

I created a tool that will do this, but I don't think it will work with 9.3 services (which the above URL is referencing).  You should be able to make minor adjustments to the python code to do this, though.

Hi Jake,

I tried to download the tool but I got "Permission Denied".

Is there another location where I can find the tool, and (more important) can it be used to extract data from this service:

http://www.pcn.minambiente.it/arcgis/rest/services

I would like to obtain a feature set of the highest resolution water lines to process further (hydrologically condition my DEM)

Thanks,

Gijs

Gijs van den Dool‌, you should be able to download the tool from the following document:

https://community.esri.com/docs/DOC-6496

This should work for any map/feature services, though I have not tested with ArcGIS Server 10.0.

Thanks I got it, and will do a test - the tool works, but the service is protected (and I don't have the credentials).

Hi Jake,

I know you are busy, but could you have a look at the link I forwarded to you, having a local copy of this data would be very useful for my project. Unfortunately, I don't get much support from the organisation which is hosting this data.

Thanks,

Gijs

Gijs1973‌,

I was able to get the tool to execute successfully.  Here is how I had it setup:

Thanks Jake,

Most appreciated, I will give it a try tomorrow.

The data layer I'm after is large: +1M poly lines. Do you think it will still work?

I keep you posted,

Gijs

Hi Jake,

Do you know why I am unable to retrieve all the information from the data server?

Blue lines: original data

Red lines: obtained data

In my first try (shapefile) I got 500K of the 1.4M objects in the second try (gdb) I get 700K line element.

Thanks,

Gijs

Gijs1973‌ can you provide the URL for the service you are trying to download?
