GIS Infrastructure and apps at the EEA
Thematic ArcGIS Servers
The EEA has a complete life cycle environment for the services production, including TEST and PRODUCTION servers. You can check them out in the Publishing guidelines.
In the ever-evolving field of Geographic Information System (GIS), ArcGIS Pro has emerged as a powerful software tool for data management, analysis, and visualization. As an organization committed to harnessing the full potential of GIS technology, we have embraced ArcGIS Pro as our primary platform for publishing services to ArcGIS Servers and creating engaging content within Portal for ArcGIS.
ArcGIS Pro offers a robust and user-friendly environment that empowers our publishers to efficiently publish their geospatial data and services. With its intuitive interface and comprehensive set of tools, ArcGIS Pro enables our team to create, manage, and share geospatial content seamlessly.
Through the integration of ArcGIS Pro with ArcGIS Servers, we have established a streamlined workflow for publishing and maintaining services. This integration ensures that our data is accessible, discoverable, and reliable for both internal use and external consumption. By leveraging the capabilities of ArcGIS Servers, we can scale our services to meet the increasing demands of our users and deliver high-performance geospatial applications.
Furthermore, the integration with Portal for ArcGIS enhances our ability to create captivating and interactive content. This robust portal empowers our team to publish web maps, applications, and other geospatial resources that can be easily shared, accessed, and utilized by our stakeholders. It serves as a centralized hub for collaboration, enabling efficient data sharing and fostering engagement with our target audience.
