Once you finish creating a globe document in ArcGlobe, you can publish it as a service and share it with others both locally and on the web. Keep in mind that you cannot publish an unsaved globed document (e.g. Untitled.3dd). You will be prompted to save your changes and save the file when attempting to publish one that is unsaved. Staging the data and publishing the document will automatically resume if you encounter this process.
To publish your globe document as a service, follow the steps below.
- Open your globe document in ArcGlobe and choose File > Share As > Service from the main menu.
- In the Share as Service window, choose Publish a service and click Next.
- Choose the ArcGIS Server connection you want to use from the Choose a connection drop-down list. If the server connection you want to use is not listed, you can create a new connection by clicking Connect To ArcGIS Server .
If you need help with this step, see About connecting to ArcGIS Server in ArcGIS for Desktop.
- Optionally, in the Publish a Service window, enter a new name for the service. The name cannot be more than 120 characters long and may contain only alphanumeric characters and underscores.
- By default, services are published to the root folder (root) of ArcGIS Server. Services can be organized into subfolders under the root folder. Choose the folder where you want to publish the service, or create a new folder to contain the service, and click Continue.
The Service Editor appears.
- In the Service Editor window, set the properties for your globe service. Here you can choose what users can do with your service and take fine-grained control of how the server will expose your service. For details on how to manually set globe service properties, see Setting globe service properties.
- Click Analyze . This examines your globe document to see if it can be published to the server.
- Fix any errors () in the Prepare window; this must be done before you can publish. Optionally, you can fix the warnings and informational messages to further improve the performance and appearance of your globe service. For more information about resolving these issues, see Analyzing your globe.
- Once you've fixed the errors and, optionally, any warnings and messages, click Publish .
Your globe service is now running on the server and can be accessed by users and clients on your network. If your server administrator has allowed web access to the service, your globe service is also now available on the web.
