ArcGIS for INSPIRE server extension

The ArcGIS for INSPIRE server object extension (SOE) is an essential core component of ArcGIS for INSPIRE. The extension provides network services in accordance with the INSPIRE directive.

At version 10.8.1 of ArcGIS for INSPIRE, the network services are as follows:

  • INSPIRE View Service (based on OGC WMS 1.3.0)
  • INSPIRE View Service—INSPIRE profile of OGC WMTS 1.0.0
  • INSPIRE Feature Download Service (based on OGC WFS 2.0.0)
  • INSPIRE Predefined Dataset Download Service (based on Atom and OpenSearch)

The extension for ArcGIS Server appends additional abilities that are in accordance with the INSPIREImplementing Rules and the INSPIRE Technical Guidance documents.

The server extension is generally based on the existing service types provided by ArcGIS Server (for example, the GeoDataServer or MapServer). As such, the above-mentioned services integrate into the existing service-typology of ArcGIS Server.


To install the ArcGIS for INSPIRE server extension, follow the instructions in the Server Extension Installation Guide. After installation, see the use case documentation for how to set up and use the INSPIRE View Service, Feature Download Service, and INSPIRE Predefined Dataset Download Service.
