Additional Information

The data's description contains HTML elements. Users can get expected WMS result by modifying the description section in service editor.


While publishing, make a small change to the Summary, Tags, or Description field in the Service Editor. As long as these values aren’t purely coming from the metadata as created in ArcCatalog, the Abstract element of the WMS Capabilities document must be properly formatted.
