EDIT: I was able to add the layer in the example below by using the GeoService url, removing 'rest/', after much trial and error. Is there documentation regarding this 'trick', or can someone explain why this works?
Is there any way to consume the data from either a GeoJSON or GeoService API url from an ArcGIS Open Data Portal page, into ArcMap (using v. 10.4.1)?
An example would be: BC OGC Pipelines
The API section looks like:
I have seen other ArcGIS Open Data pages that also include a url in the API section for OGC WMS (example), so it may be a conscious decision to not serve data in a format consumable by ArcMap, but I'm not familiar enough with web service protocols to be certain.
Things I have tried:
- adding the GeoService url (full and many shortened versions) through both 'Add ArcGIS Server' and 'Add WMS Server' in 'Add Data'
- adding the layer through 'Add Data from ArcGIS Online'. The dialog finds the layer, I click 'Add', the layer appears in the table of contents, although there appear to be no features (e.g. should be lots of pipelines at 651871E, 6197336N, UTM10).
