data service

Data services are services created to host, manage, and provide access to data. The data and services are hosted in the ArcGIS Platform. Data services include feature services, vector tile services, image tile services, and scene services. A data service is typically created by importing data with the data management tools, or performing analysis on existing data with spatial analysis tools in the Map Viewer. Data services can also be created programmatically by client APIs. Data services are accessed with a URL through the REST API.
