Can .bds files be viewed as layers in ArcGIS Business Analyst Server?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


Yes, .bds files can be brought in and viewed as layers in ArcGIS Business Analyst Server. To view the .bds files as layers in a map, make sure the map service points to the appropriate .bds files.
The data source for the layer must point to the .bds files from the sub-folder BDS Server under the Business Analyst folder.
If the map document (.mxd) used by the map service is using the appropriate data source for the .bds layers, then they will be displayed in Business Analyst Server.
