Abstract: It is well known that Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have come to be an indispensable tool for analyzing and managing spatial data. The synergies between GIS and Web technologies, the Web-based GIS, are also demonstrating their usefulness. With web services GIS, geospatial information is readily available to all who need it. Whether it be administrators, finance, researchers, or constituents. All authorized users can securely access necessary geospatial information and integrate it into their daily workflow. This greatly reduces fragmented and compartmentalized workflows and communication, and increase efficiencies. ArcGIS Server, a ESRI GIS software, is a complete and integrated server-based geographic information system (GIS) which is mainly used to share GIS resources across an organization and across the web. ArcGIS Server gives organizations the ability to centralize GIS software on application servers and deliver GIS capabilities to large numbers of users over networks. This report describes in detail all the procedures needed to install and to put into operation ArcGIS server at the ¿Sensors, Radar Technologies and Cyber-security¿ Unit of the Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizens. Finally, every component is working correctly and each qualified user has the possibility to create and to publish their GIS maps. ArcGIS Server is a fundamental instrument used also to develop the ECI GIS project (the GIS of the European Critical Infrastructures). The ECI GIS project will realize prototypes that could be used also in support of the Directive COM(2006) 787 on the identification and designation of European Critical Infrastructure and the assessment of the need to improve their protection, helping the Commission to organize the transmission procedures foreseen in the Directive in a rational and efficient manner, by using ArcGIS Server tools.
