Feature services provide data access to geographic features via a REST API. These features represent real world entities such as roads or wildfire boundaries. Web, mobile, and desktop applications access these features using RESTful webservices for rendering, editing, and analysis. The features can be accessed via both connected and offline modes. The latter supports workflows where apps need to work with poor connectivity. Feature Services run within ArcGIS Enterprise in a variety of deployments such as on-premises and private and public clouds. Feature services are used by hundreds of thousands of users worldwide. As a software developer you will work with a team of software engineers, product engineers, and designers dedicated to helping our users expose their geographic data over the Internet.
