How to download\extract the content (data) of map service layer in one go?
I couldn’t get the best practice in how to download\extract the content of map service layers in one go. Most of server tools end up with errors
Solved! Go to Solution.
you are still adding the map service layer, not as a feature layer (pls note that in my last screen shot, the URL ends with '/0')
You need to add the sublayer off your map service to a map first.
Pls note the 'Cities' underneath the 'SampleWorldCities' is selected in my screenshot below. SampleWorldCities is the map service, whereas Cities is a sublayer (of feature layer type). You need to add Cities not SampleWorldCities (in my example). In your case you need to right-click on 'Communities_Ramallah_FC' (NOT Area_ABC_PalGrid1923) and select 'Add to Current Map'
once you add this, the TOC will look like this. Note, there is no parent layer for Cities.
at this point, it works like any feature layer that you can add from a FGDB or Enterprise database (aka SDE). You can set def query, you can change its symbology/renderer etc.
Open Feature Class to Feature Class gp tool
now you can drag/drop the layer (from the TOC/Content pane, NOT from the Catalog pane) to the gp tool, OR
just select the layer from the GP tool Input Features drop down.
please give this a try and let me know if you run into any issue.
Which tool you recommend me to use to extract\download data from a particular service?
For example, the “extract data task” fails
If this is the one....
Extract Data—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop according to the warning... it isn't quite as simple as you think
which of course is buried in this whole server thing, which is quite extensive, hopefully you have seen it and can narrow it down
I have explored these tools but none of them is working.
But in principle, is there any straightforward tool that can extract data from a published service (layer)?
I tried the tool but got the error below
You need to fill the other parameter in order to make it work, the url should be referring to the layer in your map service “http://server/arcgis/rest/service/myMapService/MapServer/<layer-id> “
You need to specify If your map service is a hosted feature service or ArcGIS Server Service, then choose If you need to download the feature data or the tabular data only. If your layer is not public you need to specify the user name and password.
Thanks Rawa. Unfortunalty, it is not working despite the fact that all the parameters are filled out
What other settings I might need to consider?
