I have a quick question I hope someone can help with.

Using the ArcGIS Server (10) REST API's Export Map function can I specify the boundary type, colour, fill colour and other properties in the features that are in the image?

I know I can easily do this if I use client-side rendering in Flex or Silverlight, and I have previously done this server-side in WMS with SLD, but so far I haven't seen this in a map image retrieved from the REST API.

There is some documentation on the Export Map function but I couldn't find what I was looking for.

Any info would be much appreciated.

  • I recall hearing something like this might be coming at 10.1. Jul 18, 2011 at 3:18
  • @Kirk Kuykendall thanks for the hint, looks like this is the case.

Here is a post (see Changing symbols and renderers) from the ArcGIS Server Blog mentioning that sort of functionality coming for 10.1.

  • Thanks very much for this, I got all excited to read that yes, this functionality will be supported. Then I googled the release date for 10.1 - early 2012. Now my options are 1) wait or 2) use ArcObjects. I think I'll wait.
