SYNC missed versions from official npm registry.


ags-stream creates a readable stream of GeoJSON Features from an ArcGIS Server instance. This can be useful for scraping records from any ArcGIS Server or any other ETL process.

ags-stream is currently used in fulcrum-ags-import to import ArcGIS Server records into Fulcrum and ags-shapefile to export shapefiles from ArcGIS Server instances.


npm install ags-stream


var AgsStream = require('ags-stream');
var agsStream = new AgsStream(<service_url>, <options>?)

agsStream.on('data', function (data) {
  // data is an array of GeoJSON features
  data.forEach(function (feature) {
    doWhatever(feature); // Add the feature to you database, write to file, whatever

agsStream.on('error', function (error) {
  console.log('Oh boy, this happened: ', error);

agsStream.on('end', function () {
  console.log('All done.'); // There is no more data to read.

The service_url parameter represents a single layer in an ArcGIS Server map service. It should look something like

options is optional and accepts the following:

Option Description Default
chunkSize The number of features to fetch per request to the AGS instance 50
where The where clause for querying the service layer '1=1' (all features)
outSR The srid for the returned geometry 4326 (lat, lng)
qs An object of query strings to append to the url. These will be url encoded automatically. null
