5.1.4 ArcIMS issues

In ArcIMS 9.3.1 you cannot edit the GetFeatureInfo request template(s), either to filter out data attributes or change the format and styling. With the WMS Connector for ArcIMS 10, it is possible to edit the formating. We have not been able to test whether you can also restrict the values returned. For information on how to do this, see the ESRI help page:http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcims/10.0/mainhelp/mergedProjects/wms_connect/wms_connector/get_featureinfo.htm

A GetCapabilities request with no version specified returns the 1.1.1 version response, even if you have a version 1.3.0; this is currently fine for OneGeology, but is not conformant to the WMS specification, which requires the highest version supported to be returned.

ArcIMS is not a Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/sld) capable WMS and cannot dynamically create a legend for WMS. However, you can save a static image PNG or JPEG file to a web accessible location on your server and edit the capabilities documents (as below). Create a Style element in the Layer you are assigning the legend to with contents similar to those below:

<Style>
 <Name>default</Name>
 <Title>default</Title>
 <LegendURL width=“20” height=“10”> 
  <!-- Edit width and height for your image --> 
  <Format>image/png</Format>
  <!-- or image/jpeg if appropriate -->
  <OnlineResource
    xlink:type=“simple”
    xlink:href=“http://hostname/path/to/legendImage.png”/>
  <!-- URL for the static legend file you have created --> 
 </LegendURL>
</Style>
