Identify layers


This sample demonstrates how to identify features on a map. These features could be from different layers present in the map.

How it works

AGSMapView has a identifyLayersAtScreenPoint:tolerance:maximumResultsPerLayer:completion: method that is being used in the sample. This method takes the tap location, a tolerance and maximum results per layer and in the completion block provides an array of AGSIdentifyLayerResult objects. For a feature layer, the result object might have the geoElements property populated, if any elements are present at that location. For a map image layer, the result object might have sublayer result objects populated with geoElements or they might in turn have sublayer result objects.
