Users of our ArcGIS Add-In geoProspector love our simple tool to extract features from ESRI Map Services when Feature services do not exist. But, what do they need it for?
We designed geoProspector to simplify the complexity of identifying, downloading, and displaying Map Service data in easy-to-use ArcGIS Pro Add-In. We imaged users would need to:
- Make local copy of data to edit symbology
- Find end-points to download source data (such as county parcel information)
- Download a subset of data such as the view extent
- Access and export data that isn’t presented on screen
But don’t take our word for it. We’ve gathered some feedback to share why geoProspector has become a must-use widget for GIS users.
Legend & Symbology: Make it Your Own
“geoProspector is a highly useful tool that I use almost daily to import data from feature and map services. One of the uses I find most valuable is for map services where the symbology is not editable, and when it doesn’t allow the Legend to display only features in map extent. Having a local copy allows me to manipulate symbology, Legend items, and labels, which is typically not possible with a map service.”
Source Data Not Available: Pulling in Subsets of Data
“I use geoProspector a lot for cases where data is not available for download from a source (i.e. county parcels) but that source does provide a map or feature service. It is easy to use and intuitive, with options for downloading subsets of an entire dataset, for instance, features in map view extent or in relation to a polygon, point, or line.”
Just for fun, what else do our clients say?
“The customer service is top-notch, and any questions I had were answered quickly and thoroughly.”
