ArcGIS Server Print Service

Use a specific ArcGIS Server Print Service if you need some specific configuration within your output service. Otherwise, it is recommended to configure one central ArcGIS Server Output Service in the map elements section. In case you want to configure a specific print service, make sure that you activated the Server Object Extension for the specified service.



Find details regarding the activation of the Server Object Extension in chapter Activate SOE on a Map Service.

Allows a short description of the metadata. Word wrap can be accomplished with a \n.


Service specific copyright text to be added to the configured project copyright if the map service contributes to the map.


The service specific copyright will only be displayed if the map element Copyright is configured.


Detailed information about the use of these attributes can be found in chapters Template (File Name) and WebOffice ePaper Template (File Name).

Geographic Transformation Code/String

Geographic transformation code from WGS84 to the map coordinate system. Can be reviewed in

ArcGIS_Desktop_Installation_Folder\Documentation\geographic_transformations.pdf. If a custom transformation is used, the transformation string with parameters can be used. Copy and paste from the .gtf file is recommended.


If a geotransformation is already defined on the dataframe of the main map service, the geotransformation configured here will not be applied.
