Advice on how I can reduce cost

Question asked by ryannz on Aug 13, 2014

Hello everyone it's my first time to deal with publishing a web application with arcgis feature, so please give me advice. I have done some research and found that there are a few free services such as http://www.arcgis.com/explorer/ or https://www.arcgis.com/home/. I know there are limitations to what I can do with these free services.  But if it meets my needs, I really want to stick to it just to save cost since my company is still in testing phase. So here are the requirements:

1. I need a base map

2. I need feature layer

3. I need popup infowindows

 

I got a developer did the development work for me. And in his code, I can see these:

 

require([

    "esri/map",

    "esri/layers/FeatureLayer",

    "esri/graphic",

    "esri/dijit/PopupTemplate",

    "esri/symbols/SimpleMarkerSymbol",

    "esri/symbols/SimpleLineSymbol",

    "esri/symbols/SimpleFillSymbol",

    "esri/tasks/FeatureSet",

    "dojo/on",

    "dojo/dom",

    "esri/renderers/SimpleRenderer",

    "esri/InfoTemplate",

    "esri/geometry/Point",

    "esri/geometry/Extent",

    "esri/SpatialReference",

    "esri/tasks/GeometryService",

    "esri/tasks/ProjectParameters",

    "esri/tasks/query",

    "esri/symbols/TextSymbol",

    "esri/layers/LabelLayer",

    "dojo/_base/Color",   

    "dojo/domReady!"],

Based on my description, do you think the free service is enough to meet my needs? If not, do you have any suggestion for me on how I can save? Earlier today, I asked a question about this line:

 

geometryService = new GeometryService("http://sampleserver6.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/Utilities/Geometry/GeometryServer");

 

In production environment, it's not recommended that I use sampleserver. What other options do I have?

 

Thanks.
