Any projection


At version 3.3, the API supports using only vector layers in the map (no basemap required). This means that features from a feature service can be displayed in any projection. To use a projection other than a service's default, define the Map's spatial reference by specifying the extent constructor option. The spatial reference of the extent will be used as the map's spatial reference. When requests are made for features from a service, the map's spatial reference will be included which tells the service to re-project features before sending them to the client. Use this sample to explore various projections and to create extents for use in your own applications.

Note that the bulk of the JavaScript used in this application is contained in theapp.js file.
