Florence GIS in the news

On Tuesday Florence County conducted a mock exercise along with other SC counties. Our own GIS department was recognized in the local paper after the event.

Installing ArcGIS Server .Net on Windows 7

I have just upgraded my laptop to Windows 7 which I have to say was about the easiest OS install I have experienced. However when I went to install ArcGIS Server .NET 9.3.1, I ran into some issues with Microsoft Internet Information Server. Windows 7 uses IIS 7 which is the same as Windows Server 2008. So unlike past versions of IIS which only required you to add it as a Windows componet, this new version has some setting you need to make sure to check as you install it on your computer. I thought I would share these with you so you don’t run into the same issues I did.

When you install IIS on your Windows 7 or Server 2008 you need to make sure to include the following components:

Web Server (IIS) 7

Common HTTP Features

  • Static Content
  • Application Development
  • .NET Extensibility
  • ISAPI Extensions
  • ISAPI Filters


  • Basic Authentication
  • Windows Authentication
  • Request Filtering

Management Tools

  • IIS Management Console
  • IIS Management Scripts and Tools

Management Service

  • IIS 6 Management Compatibility
  • IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility

Hopefully this will be helpful. More information can be found in ESRI’s online help at
