4.0 LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool
Configuration
The following is provided in order to understand the
configuration, communication, and licensing for using the
LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool.
1. The LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool must be installed
on the same system that has ArcGIS for Server.
LocateXT geoprocessing services require this tool to be
physically on the server.
2. The LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool must be installed
on a system that has ArcGIS for Desktop, in order to
follow Esri's geoprocessing service publishing methods.
NOTE: ArcGIS for Server and ArcGIS for Desktop can
be on the same system or different systems.
3. LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool licenses are
Concurrent Use (Floating) licenses
4. The ClearTerra License Server must be installed
somewhere on the network where the ArcGIS Server
machine and ArcGIS Desktop machine can both
communicate, and both machines have to be configured
to communicate with the license server.
5. One license is used from ArcGIS for Desktop system
while running the LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool to
create the geoprocessing results for publishing a service.
After the run, it never has to run the LocateXT ArcGIS
for Server Tool again (unless it is publishing more
services, etc.).
6. One license is used from the ArcGIS for Server system
every time the tool executes (the geoprocessing service)
on the server.
Notes and tips


The Scenarios provided assume publishing of new services
would not be performed at same time as users running
services. Otherwise, additional licenses may be required.
Additional licenses may be required for the hosting machine if
it is likely users will often be processing jobs at the exact
same time. A license is used by the hosting server for the
exact time that it takes to process a file.

Here are two scenarios with different configurations. In each case, a single
LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool license could be used.
Scenario 1: Separate systems are used to create/publish services and to host
services. The publishing system briefly checks out a license from the license server
when a model is created to create geoprocessing results. The hosting system checks
out a license from the license server each time a job is processed by users using the
services.
Scenario 2: A single system is used to create/publish services and to host services.
The system briefly checks out a license from the license server when a model is
created to create geoprocessing results. The system also checks out a license from
the license server each time a job is processed by users using the services.
In either of these cases, the license server can be anywhere (including the same
machine) as long as it can communicate.

6.0 LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool
Capabilities
Table of
Contents
The LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool has many of the
same option settings that are available in the LocateXT
Desktop product. These options provide two very powerful
capabilities for the Server tool:


1
Allows for publishing a LocateXT geoprocessing service
to ArcGIS for Server that provides these options settings
when it is run as a service
Allows for using the tool inside of a model, custom
configured with specific options, and then published as a
service with those options. This allows for very
powerful, automated custom geoprocessing services to
be designed.
Options overview:
1. Open the LocateXT ArcGIS for Server tool.
2. Provide an Input file or Input Text (type or paste string
of text with a location) or File Path. Either of these two
inputs can be used or they can be used together.
3. Name/select an output location
4. Coordinate Options - The tool offers the same
Coordinate Option categories as the LocateXT Desktop
software. See Pgs 74-75 in the LocateXT User Guide.

5. Select a Custom Attribute file if desired for custom
extraction of data.
6. Select a Custom Locations gazetteer if place name
extraction is desired.
7. Set a Fuzzy Error level if desired.
8. Date Formats - The tool offers the same Date Format
categories as the LocateXT Desktop software. See Pg
90 in the LocateXT User Guide.
9. The Input File information section contains extra
parameters that can be built into custom models that use
LocateXT ArcGIS for Server geoprocessing services
allowing for file path and file time modified data to be
maintained. SEE SECTION 9.0 for more details.
10. Select a desired Standardized Coordinate Output (DD,
DM, DMS, UTM, or MGRS are available).
11. Output features are generated based on geocoord formats
and place name matches (if Custom Location gazetteer if
used).
5

7
The LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool can make use of
LocateXT Custom Location gazetteers (.lxtgaz) for place
name extraction and Custom Attribute files (.lxtca) for other
custom extractions. The files can be created/generated using
the LocateXT Desktop product and then shared with the
LocateXT ArcGIS for Server tool. Workflows should be
developed/tested with the Desktop product and then these
files can be shared with the Server tool for publishing custom
services.

IMPORTANT: Due to the fact there are many intertwined
complexities in play (32-bit or 64-bit OS, 32-bit ArcGIS
Desktop, 64-bit ArcGIS Server) the LocateXT ArcGIS for
Server tool may not process Office documents or PDF
documents properly when used on its own. The tool is
designed to be used to publish geoprocessing services. Text
files will always work properly and text (.txt) files should
ALWAYS be used when publishing geoprocessing
services.

7.0 Publishing a Basic LocateXT
Geoprocessing Service
Table of
Contents
A basic LocateXT geoprocessing service can be published
directly from the LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool. This
basic service has all of the same options available as the
server tool itself. This provides user flexibility, but perhaps
not as much automation as a custom LocateXT
geoprocessing service (SEE SECTION 8.0). To publish a
basic LocateXT geoprocessing service, do the following:
2
1
3
4
1. In ArcMap, select the Geoprocessing drop-down menu,
and then Results.
2. In the Results window, delete all previous
geoprocessing results for a clear slate.
3. In the Catalog window, Open the LocateXT ArcGIS
for Server Tool.
4. Select an input file. Make sure this is a text (.txt) file.
5. Select a feature class output location and name. The
name/location does not matter - it just has to be valid.
6. There is no need to set any other options at this time.
The basic LocateXT geoprocessing service will present
these options each time it is run as a service. To
configure specific options for a custom service, SEE
SECTION 8.0.
7. Click OK to run the tool and generate geoprocessing
results.
8. Return/reopen the Results window. Right-click on the
LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool results and select
Share As -- Geoprocessing Service.

Continued on next page...
Notes and tips
 IMPORTANT: When publishing services, ALWAYS use a
text file (.txt) to generate the geoprocessing results that are
the basis for publishing the service. Processing text (.txt)
ensures results are generated (seen the related 2nd note on
the previous page).
 When using ArcGIS for Server 10.1 (due to a limitation), the
text file used to generate results must have no file extension.
Simply remove the .txt extension and process the file with no
extension.

8.0 Publishing a Custom LocateXT
Geoprocessing Service
Table of
Contents
A custom LocateXT geoprocessing service can be published
from a model constructed using the LocateXT ArcGIS for
Server tool saved with various option settings and
parameters. This allows for a geoprocessing service to be
published that is custom designed and automated for specific
workflows. Examples of custom workflows include: 1)
extraction of specific coordinate formats only, 2) extraction
of place names based on a specific Custom Location
gazetteer, 3) extraction of specific Custom Attributes, 4)
extraction for specific document formats, or all of the
aforementioned. To publish a custom LocateXT
geoprocessing service, do the following:
1. In ArcMap, select the Geoprocessing drop-down menu,
and then Results.
2. In the Results window, delete all previous
geoprocessing results for a clear slate.

8.0 Publishing a Custom LocateXT
Geoprocessing Service
8. The LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool is now open.
Configure all other parameters and options that are
desired to be in the custom model. Some key
considerations/options:
 Identify/extract coordinates or not?
 Perform Custom Attribute extraction based on a
LocateXT Custom Attributes file (.lxtca)?
 Extract place names based on a LocateXT
Custom Location gazetteer file (.lxtgaz) or not?
 Fuzzy error level if using Custom Locations
 Date formats?
For example, the configuration shown is designed for social
media. It does not look for geocoordinates. It does look for
place names based on a Syria-based gazetteer, including
fuzzy match. It also performs key word searches for terms
referring to the Kurds (Kurd, Kurdish, etc.)
9. When configured as desired, click OK.
10. The model is filled in with inputs and parameters.
11. Right-click on the Input File and the Output Feature
Class objects in the model and select Model

Notes and tips

Publishing custom LocateXT geoprocessing services can
provide a highly automated tool that is easy to use. However,
it provides less flexibility “on the fly” than a basic LocateXT
service where all options are available. In many cases,
hosting both types of services will provide the best overall
capabilities.

9.0 Using the LocateXT ArcGIS for Server
Filename and modified time Python Tool
Table of
Contents
1
The LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool includes a special
python script tool that can be used to capture the local file
path and time modified data of files processed with the
LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool.
1
When using the LocateXT ArcGIS for Server Tool, a user’s
local file is uploaded to the Server for processing and results
are sent back. Due to this process, the local file path (the
LocateXT Filename field) and the file time modified (the
last time the file was modified in Windows - the LocateXT
Modified field) are based on the Server, and not the local
user machine. Therefore, the Filename field will contain an
ArcGIS for Server folder path on the remote server and the
Modified field will contain the time modified on the Server
- neither are useful. To demonstrate:
1
1. The file “Lake Erie Docks.txt” is located in the C:\data
folder and has a time modified of 7/14/2015 at 2:21pm.
2. Once the file is processed by a LocateXT geoprocessing
service however, the local file path (Filename) and the
time modified (Modified UTC) are not accurate. They
reflect the Server process.
3. The Filename and modified time python tool can be
used in conjunction with a model to capture the accurate
data.
