The municipality that I work for is currently using the latest version of MSGovern CityView. For those that have never used CityView, it's a software package that helps municipalities manage their assets and perform a variety of administrative tasks. Within this software a GIS/spatial component is made available. A user can perform non spatial queries on a variety of things (e.g. Parcels, Businesses, Parks, Utilities, etc.) and if they'd like, the information can be viewed on a map.
The current version of CityView uses ArcGIS Server to consume maps. The issue I’m having is an inconsistent rendering of maps once updates are made. Within ArcGIS Server Manager the updates seem to take place, however, when I go over to REST (
http://hostname/ArcGIS/rest/services/mapservicename/MapServer) to view the metadata as well as view the actual map, I notice that the updates have not been executed.
I've read through this blog, but I’m not sure if this is a task I should be caring out when I make updates to the map service. I want to say this is what's causing the CityView problem, but I'm not sure. I’ve tried deleting the service, deleting browsing history and then republishing the service, but the result within REST is a previous version of the map service. I'm using ArcGIS Desktop 9.3.1 and ArcGIS Server 10.0.
