ArcGIS location services

ArcGIS location services consist of two types of services that you can use to build applications: 1) ready-to-use location services, and 2) data services. Each service has a REST API that client APIs can use to access service functionality.

Location services

Location services are ready-to-use services that provide basemap layer, geocoding, routing, spatial, demographics, and other types of location-based functionality. Learn about the capabilities of each service below or how to use the services in the guide chapters.

Data services

Data services are services that host, manage, and provide access to your data. These services are created when you use data management tools to import, create, or publish data. Learn about the capabilities of each service below or how to host your data in Data hosting.
