    Support implementing Mt Government Template?

    snelsonbanff
      I'm looking for some support in implementing the My Government Services (ArcGIS10) template found here 
      http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=672504d2d0ab4cb993fe10f6f78bf12b

      I have things almost working, however I just get a white/blank screen.  Can't seem to get the data/map to show up and draw.
      Can I submit my config.txt file here for support?
      Thanks
      Steve

          Still hoping for some support with this.

          I've changed the template so that for base maps it's pulling from arcgisonline and the community maps program we participate in (that's the main reason we're participating - to use community maps inside services).

          Anyhow, I've added our own police, fire, library, etc points into the blank gov GDB template you can download, I've redirected the operational layer service urls, but still just get a swirling 'loading' icon on the screen when I click on the map.

          Some assistance on how to get this set up properly would be appreciated.  Very keen to get this up on our Amazon EC2 for the public to use - along with a couple other of your fine templates.
          Thanks

            Hello Steve,

            At first glance the issue you are having could be this step isn't implemented.

            Can you verify that you completed Step 4 of the getting started.pdf

            Step 4 �?? Publish the My Government Services Web Site
            1. Publish the My Government Services application.

            �?� Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the My Government Services application directory:

            <your_directory>\ArcGISTemplates\LocalGov\MyGovernmentServices\Application
            �?� Select the �??MyGovernmentServices�?� directory and copy it to your web server so it can be accessed as a website or virtual directory

            Note: In Microsoft IIS, the web server directory is <your_directory>\Inetpub\wwwroot\.
            2. Define the Application Pool on your web server.

            �?� Open Internet Information Services (IIS) on your computer and navigate to:

            Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
            �?� Select <your server>> Web Sites> Default Web Sites
            �?� Right-click on the MyGovernmentServices directory and select �??Convert to Application�?�
            �?� Select ASP.Net v. 4 Application Pool. Click OK.

            3. Change the ASP.Net proxy page to point to your ArcGIS REST service URL.

            �?� Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the MyGovernmentServices proxy file:

            <your_directory>\Inetpub\wwwroot\MyGovernmentServices\proxy.config
            �?� Open the Config file in Microsoft Notepad. Two lines of code need to be changed

            Cheers,
            Lindsay

              Hi LIndsay,
              Thank you for the reply - I just followed all the steps as outlined, cleared my FLEX cache and still no love.
              When I click on the map it just zooms out, then I get the little "Loading..." icon swishing around.
              Any other suggestions to get this going?
              Thanks
              Steve

                Steve,

                Did you change the extent of in the config.txt?
                 

                //Initial extent of map. To separate values use �??,�?� symbol.
                'DefaultExtent':"-9820183.18, 5123332.08, -9807373.74, 5128739.76",

                If not, grab your local extent using the extent helper widget here http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapps/flexviewer/extenthelper/flexviewer_extenthelper.html

                Also, are your basemap services completely cached?

                Cheers,
                Lindsay

                  Hey Lindsay,
                  Yes I've changed my extent - and I should update you that when the app opens it opens correclty over top of Banff, Alberta.
                  I can switch basemaps properly  - I'm calling arcgisonline basemaps, the topo one and the streets one for now.
                  Here's my code for initial extent:

                  //Initial extent of map. To separate values use �??,�?� symbol.
                  'DefaultExtent':"-12873100, 6649270, -12857100, 6656170",

                  Here's the code for my base maps:
                  //Basemap layer collection. (All the basemap�??s need to be in the same spatial reference)
                  'BaseMapLayers' : [
                      {"Key": "publicAccess", "ThumbnailSource": "images/imgPublicAccess.png", "Name" : "Topographical", MapURL: "http://server.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/World_Topo_Map/MapServer"},
                      {"Key": "imageryHybrid", "ThumbnailSource": "images/imgImageryHybrid.png", "Name" : "Streets", MapURL: "http://server.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/World_Street_Map/MapServer"}
                     ],

                  So where I'm at now is that as soon as I click I zoom out from mystating location, I see a little blut icon representing where I clicked, and the little loading thing spins around and around....

                    When I create the cache I' m getting an error at the first step where I try to Load a tiling Schema from ArcGISONLIN/BingMaps/Google -"This map service cannot use the Arconline/bing/google tiling scheme because the coordinate system does not match"

                    This makes sense since I have my government services data in my local coord system - the entire blank Local Gov GDB was 'imported' or created in our local coord system.  Is there a file I can load or a list of scales you can supply that match the ArcOnlinBingGoogle scheme?

                      Hey!  I notice my little social media links work now, along with the email tool.
                      Wasn't responding before, so getting closer!

                        Steve,

                        All your data should be in your local coordinate system. But your map document dataframe should be in WGS_1984_Web_Mercator_Auxiliary_Sphere. This will allow you to cache using the ArcGIS Online/BingMaps/Google tiling scheme. I have attached an xml you can use to load the scales and parameters you see in the GettingStarted.pdf.

                        If you cache your maps, I think that will help with the application spinning

                        Thanks,
                        Lindsay

                          I'm having nearly the same problem as above only with the Election Polling Places App. Everything comes up fine (right extent, base map shows, my own polling locations show, etc) but when I enter an address it zooms to the correct address, highlights the precinct, but then just stays there with a swirling icon and "finding precinct" message (even though the right precinct is now highlighted in the map).

                          One note: In step 3 (defining the Application Pool)  ESRI support walked me through this and because I have version 6 of IIS Manager, I needed to right click on the directory and go to "properties" then click on the "create" button, then OK. Nothing was said about the drop down Application Pool menu so it is still on DefaultAppPool instead of either of the other choices (ArcGISApplicationAppPool or ArcGISServicesAppPool).  Do you think this could be the problem?

                          Thanks for any help you can give,
                          Leitha

                            Hi Leitha,

                            The application does require you to have ASP.NET 4 set as the application pool. The application will spin at the beginning if this isn't set.

                            The .NET Framework 4 can be installed side-by-side with previous versions of the .NET Framework on a single computer. If IIS was previously enabled on the computer, the setup process for the .NET Framework automatically registers ASP.NET 4 with IIS. Check out this Microsoft article for more information on setting up the ASP .NET 4 application pool  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/k6h9cz8h.aspx

                            Cheers,
                            Lindsay

                              Hi Lindsay,
                              The basemap services are all cached by defailt since both my basemaps are being pulled from arcgisonline.
                              Again, on opening the app, everything works including basemaps.
                              I click on the map to enter a point/address, the app zooms out with what looks like the point I clicked on added to the map with the little icon,
                              Then it just spins 'loading....' and never comes back.
                              Anythng else to try here?
                              I could post or send you the config code if that might help?

                                        Yes I can see my rest endpoints and no I haven't made any schema changes, just loaded my own location points of course.
                                        I did  comment out some of the layers though as you can see in the config file - don't think that would cause any error though would it?
                                        I just don't have use for those layers right now - the trash pickup, recylcling, street cleaning, yeard waste.

                                          Please remove the commented out lines. Because you are commenting in the middle of a [ ] this could be effecting it. Once you make this change, clear your browser cache, refresh your browser and hopefully that works.

                                          (Also, is your proxy.config set correctly with all the referenced services in your config.txt ?)

                                                  Hello,

                                                  We almost have this working-- We can see the polling station points, but we are having a similar problem with our base layers;

                                                  http://localgovtemplates.esri.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Topographic/MapServer

                                                  http://localgovtemplates.esri.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/ImageryHybrid/MapServer

                                                  It seems only tiles for Naperville are enabled.  We are attempting to test this with another county in Illinois.

                                                  If we sent the initial extent to our county we get a white background(no base layers).  If we sent the extent to the default extent (Naperville), we can see the base layers.

                                                  While panning and inspecting the http requests, we are not seeing any requests to the base layers until we get to the visible (Naperville) area.  This behavior is similar to having a definition query on a dynamic layer.

                                                  Any ideas?

                                                    Hello Ryan,

                                                    The basemaps you are using in your implementation are only meant to illustrate the application for Naperville, IL. seeing white using another extent area is expected.

                                                    We recommend adopting the ArcGIS for Local Government Information Model, porting you data to it, then use the provided mxd's to create these basemaps for your area using your data. However, if you would like to quickly assess this application for your organization you can use basemap services from ArcGIS.com until you have time to the provided basemaps up and running.

                                                    http://server.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/World_Topo_Map/MapServer  and http://server.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/World_Street_Map/MapServer are what I would recommend.

                                                    Cheers,
                                                    Lindsay

                                                    (Also, when you go to implement the operational layers. The application is expecting you to use the ArcGIS for Local Government Information Model with your data and all the attributes populated correctly. The easiest way to do understand this project is to open the pollingplace.mxd (data source view) and note the required feature classes, tables and relationships. Note the model is designed to support one location for many polls)

                                                      Thanks-- That helped me figure it out.

                                                      I confused myself by viewing the http://localgovtemplates.esri.com maps on esri.com, which automatically has a similar background and giving it the appearance of a map that covers all areas.  When I turned of the basemap, I could see the localgovtemplates.esri.com map only contains Naperville tiles.

                                                      We got it to work now.  Thank you for pointing that out.

                                                        I'm having one little problem with this application, when I click on any of the options within the share this map button, I get a 500 error code from bitly and an error message pops up on screen saying undefined.  The one thing that I can point to is that since we are serving this application right now straight off the server and it does not have a .com or.anything address just the <server name>/MyGovernmentServices/default.html that the bitly api might not accept this as a valid value to shorten.  If this is the case then that's fine just something to check when we roll it out publicly but if it should be returning a shortened url then what is the proper coding to ensure this, I was using the default coding in the config.txt file, the only thing I changed was the login and api key after signing up for the service.

                                                          Just to update this thread, was not able to get MyGov template up and running internally, but was able to get it running quite easily on our Amazon EC2 instance.  We must have some sort of server issue here that just won't let this template run properly - what ever it was, couldn't figure it out.

                                                          However I now have this and a few of the other Local Gov templates up and running properly on Amazon.

                                                          Thanks also for these great Local Gov templates - for us small guys without access or funding for developers, these templates allow us to get quality/useful sevices up and running (usually) pain free.

                                                            Steve,

                                                            Please add the line below to your proxy.config.

                                                            <serverUrl url="http://tasks.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/"
                                                            matchAll="true"></serverUrl>

                                                            Javascript can be picky when an extra comma exists or is missing, in the code box below. Notice the code section below, I removed the commented section that each entry in the [ ] is separated by a comma except for the very last entry. That is the correct format.

                                                            Let me know how it goes.

                                                            Hi Lindsay:

                                                            I read with interest your replies to Steve.
                                                            Can you please explain what the difference is between setting "HasRendererImage" to true and "HasRendererImage" to false.
                                                            In the template they were set to 'false'. I see that in your examples, they were set to 'true'.

                                                            Thank you.

                                                              Never mind. I think I see the difference now.
                                                              It has to with whether or not to use the original symbols on the map.
