If you want to use the World Elevation image service, you need to publish the service on ArcGIS 10.3 for Server or later with the ArcGIS Image Extension for Server. The components for setting up the World Elevation image service are organized under the WorldElevation folder located at \\<server-ip>\source_documents\data, where <server-ip> is the network IP or server name of the data appliance.
The mosaic datasets and auxiliary files are prepared using the default path V:\WorldElevation. Follow the preparation steps below before you publish the service.
If your system does not allow mapping the network location as V:, follow the steps below to repair the paths for mosaic datasets located under \\<server-ip>\source_documents\data\WorldElevation\MD\:
The terrain image service is created by publishing the JSON file toArcGIS for Server using the publishing script provided.
The paths for the mosaic dataset in "path": and the raster function templates in "rasterFunctions": update to the new path.
For example: C:\PYTHON27\ArcGIS10.3\python.exe V:\WorldElevation\scripts\PublishService.py localhost username password V:\WorldElevation\Parameter\json\Terrain.txt
The Raster function will dynamically render the elevation derivative selected from the drop-down list.
Multi-Directional Hillshade (http://esriurl.com/NextGenHillshade), available from the ArcGIS Online World Elevation services, is a custom raster function. If you would like to add it as a server function on the terrain service that you just published on your local server, it is available to install on your server. You can download the function from http://esriurl.com/MultidirHillshadeFunction, which contains all setup files with installation documentation. Follow the instructions carefully after unzipping the ZIP file. Once installed, you can add the raster function template (refer to the documentation on saving as a raster function template) to the terrain service. Follow the instructions on how to save a raster function template (RFT) in the installation document. You can save the .rft file at the same location where other RFTs reside, for example, \WorldElevation\Parameter\RasterFunctionTemplates.
