Viewing a WFS in ArcMap 10.2


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to view some Environment Agency (EA) WFS data in ArcMap 10.2.2. I've installed the Data Interoperability extension and enabled it. I've added a new connection with the url below. It should contain the EA's main river dataset. When I load the WFS, the layer appears in the table of contents, but contains no features.

EA Main River WFS URL: http://environment.data.gov.uk/ds/wfs?SERVICE=WFS&INTERFACE=ENVIRONMENTWFS--25dde009-ba7d-40de-8380-c5c3bb32ccdc&VERSION=1.0.0

(WFS available from http://environment.data.gov.uk/ds/catalogue/#/catalogue)

oke I dont have data interoperability installed, so lets make a crude troubleshooting :D

so try to search another WFS server and make sure those service working, and try add it, if its displayed, then your arcmap should be okay :)

let me know your result

Im sorry i cant do more, I dont have those extension on my pc right now

okay I try your link and yes it doesn't work both on arcgis 10.2.2 and 10.4.1

but then I try another service, and this time I work in Arccatalog, and for sometime I can get preview, and when I refresh it , its gone

open in arcmap always no geometry

found this :


but havent have time yet to check and re-check again



oke this is weird

I try again another service (data.gov.uk/dataset/historic-environment-scotland-wfs)., using arcgis 10.4.1

first try using default setting, got no geometry

and then try to change WFS version and connection timeout 

and it works, whooohooooo :D
