Publish services

Water Access information can be accessed on a smartphone, tablet and desktop computer with the Water Access application. Select a deployment method using ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS for Server and follow the steps below to publish the services required for the Water Access Locator application.

To implement the Water Access application, complete the following steps:

  1. Publish the WaterAccess.mxd as a hosted feature service using ArcGIS Online or as a feature service using ArcGIS for Server.
  2. Choose a geometry service. If you are using ArcGIS for Server and the geometry service has not started, start the geometry service. If you are using ArcGIS Online, use the geometry service provided by Esri or a geometry service from another ArcGIS for Server machine.
  3. Sign in to your ArcGIS Online organization.
