ArcGIS to ArcIMS
Posted 25 August 2005 - 03:11 AM
Does anyone know how to convert the ArcMAP workspace file (*.mxd) to ArcIMS workspace file (*.axl)??
Currently, i am using one from the ESRI Script Site but there was a lot of problems with the layers (e.g hatching does no appear in IMS as well as line sytles differ).
I hope someone can give me a suggestion to work around this. Thanks!!!

I always build my axl files from scratch (with a lot of manual editing).
You should try the ArcMap server thing for ArcIMS, then you will be able to use your mxd directly.

I have never tried a conversion script, and I wouldn't want to play with that anyways. ArcIMS only supports a limited subset of the cartographic features in ArcMap.
It is a bit time consuming, but when it is up and running and you only need to tweak it, it works very well.
ArcGIS ArcMap Server is an extension or part of ArcIMS, introduced in 9.0 (or was it 4.1?). First it was windows only, but not it runs on all supported platforms (I think). I haven't played with it yet. It gives you access to all the functionality in ArcMap through a server, but I am quite sure you lose quite a lot of performance on the way as well...

I do know that using the arcmap server I was able to do more than just doing an .axl file
I may do some tests after we get our public one up and running.
BTW- the sites look good
