Activate Geoprocessing

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Follow the instructions in this chapter to activate geoprocessing functionality for the WebOffice 10.8 SP2 Sample Project. The functionality is configured in the project configuration but turned off by default since there have to be done some adjustments.

 

Note: You can only activate geoprocessing if you already have a working WebOffice Sample Project. If this is not the case, start with chapter Copy WebOffice Sample Project Data instead.

 

Copy WebOffice Sample Project Geoprocessing Data

You will need the following files from the WebOffice10.8-DVD:

WebOffice10.8-DVD\SampleProject\WebOffice directories Add-On\WebOfficeGeoprocessing

WebOffice10.8-DVD\SampleProject\WebOffice directories Add-On\WebOfficeLayerFiles\SewerSections.lyr

 

First, add a folder called Geoprocessing at your data directory (e.g. D: Data\SampleProject\). Copy the files Geoprocessing.gdb, the Python Script CalculateSewerProperty.py and the toolboxes CalculateAreaTable and SewerSections, which are located at WebOffice10.8-DVD\SampleProject\WebOffice directories Add-On\WebOfficeGeoprocessing\SampleProject in the generated folder.

In the second step copy the folder WebOfficeGeoprocessing into C:\arcgisserver\directories\. This folder contains two file geodatabases with the base data needed to run the geoprocessing tools. Assign the ArcGIS Server account full access rights to the file geodatabases.

Note: In order to run the geoprocessing tools the correct paths are important. If you save the WebOfficeGeoprocessing folder in a different location than C:\arcgisserver\directories, or your Sample project data is stored in another location than D:\data\SampleProject several paths in the model/script have to be adjusted.

 

Run the Geoprocessing Tools in ArcGIS Desktop

Before being able to publish a geoprocessing service you have to register the file geodatabases on your ArcGIS Server and run the tools once in ArcGIS Desktop. Therefore, open ArcMap and add the folder to your registered folders via ArcGIS Server Properties.

Publish the Geoprocessing Service

Then open the Results window in ArcMap and right click the respective entry. Now choose Share as > Geoprocessing Service to publish your result as a geoprocessing service.

In the Publish a Service dialog leave the default service name but choose to publish service to folder SampleProject. In the Service Editor window go to Parameters and change Execution Mode to Synchronous. Optionally, you can choose Message Level: Info. Then publish the service.

 

Activate Geoprocessing in the WebOffice Sample Project

Start WebOffice author and open the WebOffice_SampleProject. Navigate to EDIT > Tools > Geoprocessing - Calculate Municipality Area and change the parameter Use tool? to 'Yes'. Then save the project configuration and publish the project.

Note: If you published the geoprocessing service with a different name, you will have to adjust the server name in ArcGIS Server Geoprocessing Service.

 

Finally, open SynAdmin and reload the resources of the WebOffice_SampleProject in order to make the new geoprocessing service available. Now the Calculate Municipality Area tool is available in the WebOffice 10.8 SP2 clients. With this tool you can calculate the area of a municipality of Graz and display the result as a table in WebOffice 10.8 SP2. Optionally, you can add a date into the table.

Sewer Sections per Property

If not existing yet, copy the entire folder WebOfficeLayerFiles from WebOffice10.8-DVD\SampleProject\Project\ into C:\arcgisserver\directories. Otherwise, just copy the file SewerSections.lyr.

Note: If you use another directory than C:\arcgisserver\directories\WebOfficeLayerFiles for saving the SewerSections.lyr you have to adapt the Symbology of the Sewer Section Parameter in SewerSections Properties.

 

Repeat the steps described above for the second tool, the script SewerSections. When running the tool in ArcGIS Desktop use the following sample inputs:

Object ID: 59,490,1349

 

In the Service Editor set Execution Mode:Asynchronous, activate the checkbox View results with a map service and set Message Level: Info. Then publish the result.

Then activate the tool in WebOffice author and reload resources in SynAdmin.

When using the tool in the WebOffice html client, you can either start the tool from the toolbar and enter input parameters manually or pass Object IDs from a selection. For the second option, change map view to Sewer System + Orthophoto and select a couple of Sewers - Combined Wastewater. Then start the tool by clicking the button from the search result.

The geoprocessing tool will automatically run and add a new temporary map service to the table of content. Since the geoprocessing service runs asynchronous with activated checkbox, it is possible to use a predefined layer symbology saved in WebOfficeLayerFiles.
