Topic: Best Practices for Publishing Geoprocessing Tools in a distributed environment, Tips and TricksTechnology Associates developed a sophisticated geoprocessing application using Python and ModelBuilder that is published to ArcGIS Server, to perform geospatial analysis on over 100 data layers that ask questions such as:
·What environmental layers intersects the project area within specified buffer distances? ·How far features are from work sites? ·What are the temporary or permanent impacts in acres for each site? ·What is the elevation and centroid coordinates (in 8 different systems) for each worksite? ·Reports on frequency of occurrence for RT&E species and closest occurrence.
An Environmental Screening Report is generated from geoprocessing results using an XML Reader to render results. As part of the geoprocessing task, Technology Associates developed a separate model used for refreshing the FGDB schema. This minimizes application down-time during data refreshes, cuts hand-on pre-processing time and primes the GIS data for optimized geoprocessing speed.
