Setting up a Tiling/Caching Google Maps/ArcGIS Server Solution

Setting up a Setting up a Tiling/Caching Google Maps/ArcGIS Server Solution has gotten much easier with the advent of ArcGIS Server 9.3 and its REST-ful Javascript API. Specifically, the ArcGIS JavaScript Extension for Google Maps makes creating this kind of mashup almost a breeze 😉

added 8/20/08: this link at an ESRI site really helped a lot

1. reproject shapefiles into world mercator web projection (only available in 9.3)

2. add new service from mxd containing that/those shapefiles

3. enable tiling in the “service properties” for your web service. You should use the google/virtual earth tiling scheme

4. paste the service url into the example code for the extension
