Scoping ArcGIS seeds
We recommend adding the following expand scope rule for crawling ArcGIS using Archive-It:
- Expand the scope of your seed to include arcgis.com. ArcGIS often hosts data on multiple servers/hosts, thus making it hard to find and implement a simple fix.
Running your crawl
- Crawl using Brozzler.
- Because expanding the scope can increase the amount of data captured, we also recommend running a test crawl before committing data directly to your account.
- After the crawl data has been saved, use Wayback QA on the archived pages if you notice any missing functionality.
What to expect from archived ArcGIS content
ArcGIS content contains known capture and replay constraints. Because dynamic elements that require a user’s input, like maps that zoom in and out, will generally not work in Wayback, most maps will appear as a static image with no interactive functionality.
