Supported browsers and devices
ArcGIS Roadway Reporter is supported on the following browsers and devices:
- Internet Explorer 9+
The Find My Location button will only work when accessing Roadway Reporter through HTTPS.
- An ArcMap deployment of Roads and Highways, including a Windows-based ArcGIS Server deployment of ArcGIS Roads and Highways Server.
- A Portal for ArcGIS on-site deployment or an ArcGIS organizational account to support storage of user-created Roadway Reporter configurations.
- A web server, such as Internet Information Server (IIS), to deploy the Roadway Reporter web app.
Deploying Roadway Reporter
To deploy Roadway Reporter and a supporting dataset, follow the steps below:
The following workflow is applicable only to an ArcMap deployment of Roads and Highways.
- Install Roads and Highways Server and Roadway Reporter.
Roadway Reporter requires an additional license. Use the Software Authorization Wizard to provide the authorization key after installing Roads and Highways Server and Roadway Reporter.
- Create a map document (.mxd) in ArcMap with the routes, internal event layers, intersections (for road log report only) and external event layers (for road log report only) using ArcGIS Roads and Highways Desktop.
A typical map document for Roadway Reporter contains networks, event layers, and intersection layers. Optionally, you can add polygon layers such as administrative boundaries that can be used to select the routes for which the report will be generated.
- Publish the Generate Report geoprocessing service to your instance of ArcGIS Server.
- Publish the map document with ArcGIS Server and enable the Roads and Highways Server linear referencing capability.
- Make sure IIS is enabled. Also make sure all the .NET/ASP.NET features are enabled. This can be done with the Microsoft Windows Server Manager console.
The following example of this Windows dialog box and its features may look different based on your operating system. The highlighted features are required to be enabled on your machine.
- Using Windows Explorer, browse to and copy the contents of <Installation location>\LocationReferencing\Server<Server Version>\Web\RoadsandHighways\RoadwayReporter into the web folder of the web server.
For example, in IIS, the web folder may be located at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\RoadwayReporter.
The actual location of the IIS wwwroot directory could differ on your server machine. Use the IIS Management Console to get the location of the IIS wwwroot directory.
- Author a web map that includes the map service created in the previous step and the appropriate basemaps.
- Open the configuration (config.json) file located in the RoadwayReporter web folder and modify it to use the web map and geoprocessing services created from previous steps.
- Configure the Portal for ArcGIS or your ArcGIS organizational account to save report configurations.
You can enable security for Roadway Reporter to secure the map services being used in the Roadway Reporter web app.
