New WebFOCUS/ESRI Solution Architecture
WebFOCUS – ESRI Integration
Web Application Development Framework
 The ArcGIS Server Versions 9 & 10 Java platform provides a set of
components that can be used to create a Web-based mapping and
analysis application. These components not only provide a broad
array of functionality out of the box, but they have also been
designed to allow for easy extension and the ability to work with
multiple data sources.
 In WebFOCUS Release 8, we will be extending the capabilities by
allowing for the integration of WebFOCUS Flex Enable standard
components
WebFOCUS – ESRI Integration
Multiple Map Services
 Customers are developing multiple Map

Services and having them display on
one Map.
For example, one Map Service
displaying a layer for Cities and a layer
for Streets would be created as a Tiled
Map Service. Tiled Map Services are
usually used where the layers are
common for most types of GIS analysis
and are usually cached. The second
Map Service would be the specific
layers that are needed for a specific
type of GIS analysis.
WebFOCUS – ESRI Integration
Buffering
 Ability to select features from
one map layer that is located
within a certain distance of
features on a different map
layer. An example of this is the
ability to select all crimes within
a 1, 3, n mile(s) buffers of a
coming up event. All three
geometry types (point, line and
polygon) supported by
buffering.
WebFOCUS – ESRI Integration
Group Layer Support
 In ArcGIS Server, a Map Service can contain groupings of individual
layers called a Group Layer. The purpose of a Group Layer is to be
able to turn off and on a set of layers at once.
WebFOCUS – ESRI Integration
Synthetic Layers
 Free form Layers – Equivalent to acetate layers or graphic layers.
 Ability to render coordinates on the fly.
 Ability to transform coordinates on the fly.
 Geographic
 Projected, e.g., Stateplane
 Types – points, lines, polygons.
 Use features rendered on these layers to perform spatial queries to
retrieve related data from other feature layers and or databases.

Future: Support for Density Mapping
 When we plot points on a map we will dynamically be able to color
code the clustering of these points. For example, if there is a
significant amount of points clustered in one small area of a map,
we might want to show that area of points in red. If there are less
points existing in other parts of the map, we might want to show
that area of points in green.
