I'm just starting with GIS.

I'm using Leaflet to get a WMS layer. It works fine, but I want to know how can I serve the tiles from my own server. I have a .gdb file and several .lyr files.

What I want to achieve is generate an endpoint in my server like wms.example.com where I can get the WMS layer without consulting an external URL.

  • Do you have access to ArcGIS for Desktop and ArcGIS for Server? – PolyGeo Jun 17 '16 at 18:51
  • @PolyGeo no, only the files that I downloaded with the information – IAmJulianAcosta Jun 17 '16 at 18:53

  • You do not need ArcGIS to read a file geodatabase (gdb) or to serve a WMS from it but my understanding is that there is nothing else that can read a layer file (lyr). – PolyGeo Jun 17 '16 at 19:00
  • What is a lyr file? Is a generated file from ArcGIS? – IAmJulianAcosta Jun 17 '16 at 19:10

Unless you relax your requirement to use layer files and style your layers using another method, I am not aware of a solution that meets all your requirements.

  • Thanks for your answer. Is possible to read a gdb with geoserver? – IAmJulianAcosta Jun 17 '16 at 21:58

    @IAmJulianAcosta That's another question. I suspect the answer can be easily found using a search here or using your favourite search engine, but if not, then ask a new question. – PolyGeo Jun 17 '16 at 22:04
