The Maine Office of GIS provides geocoding services available as REST services. They can be consumed in ArcGIS or directly by an application The Maine Office of GIS and the Maine GeoLibrary Board provide web mapping services to distribute aerial photos and other digital data. A WMS is not a web application which you can see in a web browser, rather, it requires you to add the service to a GIS software application. These services have been successfully tested in ArcGIS, MapInfo, Google Earth, QGIS, gvSIG, Gaia and uDig. Displays MaineDOT GIS data in an interactive map. Intended for anyone working to advise, plan, or support the management of transportation infrastructure. Not intended for trip-planning. Displays state roads as well as bridges posted for weight restrictions. Does not currently show local (municipally-owned) roads that may be posted for weight. Intended for anyone driving or coordinating vehicles with heavy loads. Displays MaineDOT GIS representation of construction project locations which are planned to be advertised in the current calendar year. Intended for anyone interested in transportation infrastructure construction projects for-which MaineDOT plans to solicit bids (a.k.a. advertise). Displays MaineDOT GIS representation of ARRA-funded projects and basic information including description, status, cost and MaineDOT contact information. The Land for Maine’s Future program seeks to conserve lands that have exceptional recreational or ecological value along with working lands for farms, forests, tourism, and working waterfronts. The Grants and Community Recreation Division, in addition to its responsibilities regarding federal and state grant programs, serves as a resource for Maine cities and towns in matters related to community recreation. The Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands Boating Facilities Division’s public boat access site data is available, geographically referenced, via Google Earth.

The default order for both 3-band and 4-band rasters needs to be set to 1 – 2 – 3 for Red-Green-Blue. http://webhelp.esri.com/arcgisdesktop/9.3/index.cfm?TopicName=Setting_the_default_bands_to_display_multiband_rasters WMS was not supported in ArcGIS until version 9.1. Users of 9.0 and 8.3 can access WMS with free add-ons from ESRI: 9.0 users can install . There is a bug with using WMS in ArcGIS v 9.3.1 – you must explicitly set the version to 1.1.1 in the version drop-down box when making the connection. CAD users – some CAD clients will attempt to connect at WMS v1.3, you can explicitly set the version for CAD clients by adding VERSION=1.1.1& to the end of the URL when making your connection. Each service by default is provided in lat/long, but will also work in UTM and State Plane (and probably any other projection system). Printing these and any other WMS using ArcGIS – if you are printing very large maps (E-size and larger), you may find the WMS is not printing properly. You can fix this by lowering the ‘image quality’ in your printer settings to ‘normal’ (1:3) or even lower. Even printing at the lowest setting (‘fast’ or 1:5), it will look fine on a big map. Source.
