Adding Tiled Map Services from ArcGIS to MapGuide

MapGuide 3.1.2 is recently out, and it has some really cool changes.  The best, IMO, is the XYZ Maps.


For example, the ESRI Satellie MapServer (https://server.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/World_Imagery/MapServer/)

If there are Tiles you can view them in MapGuide 3.1.2 (using MapGuide Maestro of course!).

Using the following syntax:


Notice the dollar signs before each of the XYZ items. This where MapGuide passes the XYZ to ArcGIS to get the correct tile.

For a few more to try:

ESRI Streets:
Esri Topography:


Or you can use any ESRI Server with Tiles.  For example here is the State of New Jersey’s NJGINE GIS 2015 Aerials:


Here is an example in Princeton, NJ:


So if you have an ArcGIS Server with Tiled layers, you can consume them in MapGuide Open Source 3.1.2 now!
