The Tygron Platform allows you to access data through a WFS endpoint, making the data available to view and edit via other GIS applications such as ArcGIS Pro.

How to access the WFS of your project in ArcGIS Pro:
  1. Select the export option of the geo data source you wish to access.
  2. For the export option "Web Feature Service", select "Copy URL". This will store the URL on your clipboard.
  3. Open ArcGIS Pro.
  4. Add a WFS Connection.
  5. As URL for the server connection, paste the URL copied to the clipboard earlier without the token part (the question mark and beyond)
  6. Add the token parameter and its value to the custom parameters and click ok.
  7. Open the "Servers" tab, to display the list of available layers and add the desired layer to your map.


  • The WFS is currently only available when a project is active in the editor.
  • The WFS url includes an authentication token which ties the validity of the url to a specific session. If the editing session is closed and reopened at a later time, the url will need to be renewed. See also these notes for more information.
