FAQ: What is the meaning of the ArcWeb Services data source name?

Question

What is the meaning of the ArcWeb Services data source name?

Answer

Each ArcWeb Services data source name contains important information about the data source. Data source names always use the following format:

ArcWeb:[data provider].[type of data].[geographic region]

For example, ArcWeb:TA.Streets.NA is a street data source provided by Tele Atlas for the North American region.

If it is a custom data source, 'ArcWeb' is replaced by the user name of the person who created that data source.
