feature layer

A feature layer is a data layer that can access and display feature data with the same type of geometry (point, polyline, or polygon) and attribute fields. A feature layer's data are commonly stored, hosted, and managed in a feature service. Applications can query, visualize, edit, and perform spatial analysis using feature layers.
