Maritime Chart Service (MCS) for Maritime: Server

  1. Login as a Server Manager by launching https://localhost:6443/arcgis/manager.
  2. Click Services.
  3. Stop the map service with Maritime Chart Service capabilities configured.
  4. Move the controlfiles folder from <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\arcgisserver\directories\maritimeserver\maritimechartservice\controlfiles to a backup location.
  5. Copy the new controlfiles folder from <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\MaritimeServer\Server<version>\maritimechartservice to <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\arcgisserver\directories\maritimeserver\maritimechartservice.
  6. If modifications were made to the old control files, they will need to be made to the new control files. The backup control files can be used to consolidate modifications with the new control files. For example, Coordinate systems and AutoCellUpdate settings.
  7. If the map service was configured to read S-63 encrypted datasets, copy the S-63 user-permit.txt file from the backup controlfiles folder to the new controlfiles folder.
  8. Delete the .senc files from <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\arcgisserver\directories\maritimeserver\maritimechartservice\sencs. The .senc files must be rebuilt after upgrading. Deleting them will significantly increase creation performance.
  9. Repeat steps 1 through 8 for each map service with the Maritime Chart Service capabilities configured.
  10. Login as an administrator by launching https://localhost:6443/arcgis/admin.
  11. Click Uploads.
  12. Click Upload.
  13. Click Choose File and browse to the MaritimeService.soe file located in <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\MaritimeServer\Server<version>\Bin.

  23. Click Services.
  24. Click the map service for which you want to enable the Maritime Chart Service.
  25. Click Capabilities.
  26. Verify that the datasetsDirectory, controlFilesDirectory, and workingDirectory properties point to the correct locations. For more information about these properties, see the 'Modifying Maritime Chart Service capabilities properties' section of Setting Maritime Chart Service properties.
  27. Click Save and Restart to make the Maritime Chart Service available.
  28. Confirm the Maritime Chart Service capabilities are working properly in the map service by verify that the .senc files in the sencs folder are current.
  29. Repeat steps 22 - 28 for each map service with Maritime Chart Service capabilities configured.

Products on Demand (PoD) for Maritime Server
This update is only required for existing Maritime PoD deployments. For a new deployment follow the Deploy Maritime PoD steps.

  1. Ensure Maritime Chart Service has been upgraded, see Maritime Chart Service steps above.
  2. Backup the productsondemand folder at <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\arcgisserver\directories\maritimeserver\productsondemand.
  3. Copy the productsondemand folder installed by this patch at <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\MaritimeServer\Server<version>\ to <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\arcgisserver\directories\maritimeserver\.
  4. Merge modifications made to the productsondemand files in the backup folder with the new productsondemand folder. This may include layout templates, etc. file update for Maritime Server: Products on Demand

  1. Navigate to the file which is typically located at <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\arcgisserver\directories\ maritimeserver\productsondemand\Tools. This is the shared_products_path where productsondemand will be deployed.
  2. Edit the following variables:
    • shared_products_path and output_directory: update machine name, domain and the path if you did not use default settings.
    • output_url: Use localhost for testing only otherwise, update machine name, domain and the path if you did not use default settings.
  3. Save your updates.
  4. For the Calculator service copy the file to <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\arcgisserver\directories\arcgissystem\arcgisinput\POD\Calculators.GPServer\extracted\v101\tools.
  5. For the Gateway service copy the file to <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\arcgisserver\directories\arcgissystem\arcgisinput\POD\Gateway.GPServer\extracted\v101\tools.
  6. In ArcGIS Server Manager click Services and choose Manage Services.
  7. Click Folders and choose POD.
  8. Restart your Calculator and Gateway geoprocessing services.

Configuring the Maritime Server: Products on Demand web application

  • Updated layout templates.
  • Updated or published a new map service with Maritime Chart Service enabled.
  • Updated file and restarted the Calculator and Gateway geoprocessing services.
  1. Move the pod web application folder to a backup location. For IIS it would be the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\pod folder.
  2. Navigate to <ArcGIS Server installation drive>\MaritimeServer\Server\WebApplications and copy the folder called pod to C:\inetpub\wwwroot if using IIS to deploy your web application.
  3. Optionally rename the folder pod. The folder name will be the name of the application you access over the web.
  4. Consolidate any modifications from the backup pod web application with the new pod web application.
  5. Edit your podconfig.js file located under pod\js with your published POD service:
    • Update serviceURL to the location created in step 2 of Publishing Service Definition Files. If defaults were used, then the path is
    • Update the MCSURL path, which the pod web application will use for viewing, to the map service path used in your layout template. The default location is The layout template WMS service will be used by the print service to create the chart export.
    • Optionally change the basemap from the Esri Ocean Basemap by modifying the BasemapWithMCS variable.
  6. Save your changes to the podconfig.js file.
  7. You are now ready to use Products on Demand by browsing to http://<your server>/<web application name>.
