Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.16

ImageryTileLayer presents raster data from a tiled image service. Binary imagery tiles are projected, processed, and rendered on the client-side. Tiled access is fast and scalable.

ImageryTileLayers may be created in one of three ways:

  1. From a service URL pointing to a tiled image service
  2. From a Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF
  3. From an ArcGIS portal item ID pointing to a tiled image service.
// reference an tiled image service via the ImageryTileLayer.url
require(["esri/layers/ImageryTileLayer"], function(ImageryTileLayer) {
  let layer = new ImageryTileLayer({
    url: "https://sampleserver6.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/Toronto/ImageServer"
  });
});

Image tiles

There are four types of image service tiles that can be leveraged by ImageryTileLayer:

  1. Raster tiles represent tiles with meaningful pixel values compressed with LERC or JPEGPNG. The hosted land cover ImageryTileLayer sample uses a raster tile service.
  2. Map tiles represent rendered map images, typically in JPEG or PNG format. For example, this tile image service has map tiles.
  3. Elevation tiles represent precooked elevation data compressed with Limited Error Raster Compression (LERC). Review the Tiled elevations service document for more information. The ImageryTileLayer - shaded relief renderer sample uses a service with elevation tiles.
  4. Transposed multidimensional tiles are a subtype of raster tiles, which are hyper-cubic image tiles representing specific variables over all dimensions. They are created for optimizing performance while accessing pixel values across all multidimensional slices. Transposed multidimensional tiles are not used for visualization; they are only used for analysis. For example, you would use transposed multidimensional tiles to perform an identify operation that would provide access to dimension series' pixel values for a requested variable at a given location. The Transposed multidimensional ImageryTileLayer sample demonstrates how these services can be used for analysis efficiently.

Referencing Cloud Optimized GeoTiff URL (beta)

Starting at version 4.25, ImageryTileLayer can be created by setting the url property to point to a Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF (COG) file. COG is a regular GeoTIFF file, hosted on a HTTP file server, with internal settings that enable efficient workflows on the cloud. This may be a useful option when your imagery workflow generates a temporary image, and you need to view the image without having to publish it as an image service. In addition to the geo/tiff specifications, the JS API also supports auxiliary metadata (aux.xml) containing statistics and histograms, and attribute tables (vat.dbf) if the COG has categorical information such as land use type. Review the ImageryTileLayer with COG sample to see COG in action.

Notes

At this release, only COGS with the following settings are supported:

  • Non user defined spatial references with EPSG codes or spatial references with esri WKT.
  • NONE, JPEG, DEFLATE, LZW, LERC compressions.
  • Bits per sample that is multiple of 8.
  • Affine and polynomial transformations (in aux with coefficients).
  • Photometric interpretation with normal grayscale, RGB or color palette. Other photometric interpretation are read but displayed without color space conversion.

Working with multidimensional raster data

Multidimensional data is commonly used in the scientific community to store atmospheric, oceanographic, and earth science data. Temperature, humidity, wind speed, and direction are all examples of the data that can be stored as variables in a multidimensional array. As illustrated in the graphic below, multidimensional data can show sea temperature (variable) for a specific area at multiple time and depth dimensions. This information is stored as slices, where the service has a slice for each unique combination of dimension values and variable names.

layers-imagery

ImageryTileLayer's multidimensional data information can be accessed through the layer's rasterInfo.multidimensionalInfo property. This information can then be used for analysis and visualization. For example, in the following snippet, the time dimension values associated with the wind_magdir variable are read from the layer's rasterInfo.multidimensionalInfo property once the layer is loaded. Then, time values are used to configure the TimeSlider widget to animate the wind speed and direction data over time.

view.whenLayerView(layer).then(() => {
  // get all time dimension values from the service, create an array of dates
  const windEpochDates = layer.rasterInfo.multidimensionalInfo.variables[0].dimensions[0].values;
  const windDates = windEpochDates.map((item) => new Date(item));

  // time slider widget initialization
  // users can visualize daily wind information for all the time dimension available
  const timeSlider = new TimeSlider({
    mode: "instant",
    view: view,
    fullTimeExtent: {
      start: new Date(windDates[0]), // Jan 1, 2011,
      end: new Date(windDates[windDates.length - 1]) // Dec 31, 2011
    },
    // set the stops to match the dates coming from time dimension
    stops: {
      dates: windDates
    }
  });
});

To display data based on a specific slice of a variable and dimensions, set the layer's multidimensionalDefinition property to an array of desired dimensional definitions. For example, the following snippet shows how to update the layer's multidimensionalDefinition to display data based on a given StdZ (depth) value in response to a slider thumb change event.

depthSlider.on(["thumb-change", "thumb-drag"], (delta) => updateRenderer("StdZ", value));
const updateRenderer = promiseUtils.debounce(function (dimensionName, sliderData) {
  // set the depth or StdZ dimension of the layer corresponding to the slider's thumb location
  const multidimensionalDefinition = layer.multidimensionalDefinition;
  const depthDef = multidimensionalDefinition.find((def) => def.dimensionName === "StdZ");
  if (dimensionName === "StdZ") {
    if (depthDef.values[0] === sliderData.value) {
      return;
    }
    depthDef.values[0] = sliderData.value;
  }
  layer.multidimensionalDefinition = multidimensionalDefinition;
});

The multidimensionalSubset can be set on a layer to expose only a subset of multidimensional data that satisfies the requirements. For example, if you have one year of wind speed and direction data collected daily, but only want to expose a subset of the data for every day of October, then you can set the multidimensionalSubset property on the layer as shown in the code snippet below.

// Wind speed and direction info for every day of Oct will be available on the layer.
// Users will not be able to access data that falls outside of Oct.
const multidimensionalSubset = new MultidimensionalSubset({
  subsetDefinitions: [
    {
      variableName: "wind_magdir",
      dimensionName: "StdTime",
      values: [1317427200000, 1320019200000], // 10/1/14 - 10/31/14
      isSlice: true
    }
  ]
});
layer.multidimensionalSubset = multidimensionalSubset;

The following image illustrates when the multidimensionalDefinition and multidimensionalSubset properties are both set on the layer. Slices with the purple borders are slices included in the layer's multidimensionalSubset. The slice with the red border is the multidimensionalDefinition of the layer and what is visible on the map. The layer's multidimensionalDefinition must fall within the multidimensionalSubset, otherwise nothing will be displayed in the map.

blendMode String

Blend modes are used to blend layers together to create an interesting effect in a layer, or even to produce what seems like a new layer. Unlike the method of using transparency which can result in a washed-out top layer, blend modes can create a variety of very vibrant and intriguing results by blending a layer with the layer(s) below it.

When blending layers, a top layer is a layer that has a blend mode applied. All layers underneath the top layer are background layers. The default blending mode is normal where the top layer is simply displayed over the background layer. While this default behavior is perfectly acceptable, the use of blend modes on layers open up a world of endless possibilities to generate creative maps.

The layers in a GroupLayer are blended together in isolation from the rest of the map.

In the following screenshots, the vintage shaded relief layer is displayed over a firefly world imagery layer. The color blend mode is applied to the vintage shaded relief and the result looks like a new layer.

color-blend

Known Limitations

The following factors will affect the blend result:

  • Order of all layers
  • Layer opacity
  • Opacity of features in layers
  • Visibility of layers
  • By default, the very bottom layer in a map is drawn on a transparent background. You can change the MapView's background color.
Blend mode Description
normal The top layer is displayed over the background layer. The data of the top layer block the data of background layer where they overlap.
average Takes the mathematical average of top and background layers. Result of average blend mode is often similar to the effect of setting the layer's opacity to 50%.

Lighten blend modes:

The following blend modes create lighter results than all layers. In lighten blend modes, pure black colors in the top layer become transparent allowing the background layer to show through. White in the top layer will stay unchanged. Any color that is lighter than pure black is going to lighten colors in the top layer to varying degrees all way to pure white.

Lighten blend modes can be useful when lightening dark colors of the top layer or removing black colors from the result. The plus, lighten and screen modes can be used to brighten layers that have faded or dark colors on a dark background.

Blend mode Description
lighten Compares top and background layers and retains the lighter color. Colors in the top layer become transparent if they are darker than the overlapping colors in the background layer allowing the background layer to show through completely. Can be thought of as the opposite of darken blend mode.
lighter Colors in top and background layers are multiplied by their alphas (layer opacity and layer's data opacity. Then the resulting colors are added together. All overlapping midrange colors are lightened in the top layer. The opacity of layer and layer's data will affect the blend result.
plus Colors in top and background layers are added together. All overlapping midrange colors are lightened in the top layer. This mode is also known as add or linear-dodge.
screen Multiplies inverted colors in top and background layers then inverts the colors again. The resulting colors will be lighter than the original color with less contrast. Screen can produce many different levels of brightening depending on the luminosity values of the top layer. Can be thought of as the opposite of the multiply mode.
color-dodge Divides colors in background layer by the inverted top layer. This lightens the background layer depending on the value of the top layer. The brighter the top layer, the more its color affects the background layer. Decreases the contrast between top and background layers resulting in saturated mid-tones and blown highlights.

Darken blend modes:

The following blend modes create darker results than all layers. In darken blend modes, pure white in the top layer will become transparent allowing the background layer to show through. Black in the top layer will stay unchanged. Any color that is darker than pure white is going to darken a top layer to varying degrees all the way to pure black.

The multiply blend mode is often used to highlight shadows, show contrast, or accentuate an aspect of a map. For example, you can use multiply blend mode on a topographic map displayed over hillshade when you want to have your elevation show through the topographic layer. See the intro to layer blending sample.

The multiply and darken modes can be used to have dark labels of the basemap to show through top layers. See the darken blending sample.

The color-burn mode works well with colorful top and background layers since it increases saturation in mid-tones. It increases the contrast by tinting pixels in overlapping areas in top and bottom layers more towards the top layer color. Use this blend mode, when you want an effect with more contrast than multiply or darken.

The following screenshots show how the multiply blend mode used for creating a physical map of the world that shows both boundaries and elevation. multiply-blend

Blend mode Description
darken Emphasizes the darkest parts of overlapping layers. Colors in the top layer become transparent if they are lighter than the overlapping colors in the background layer, allowing the background layer to show through completely.
multiply Emphasizes the darkest parts of overlapping layers by multiplying colors of the top layer and the background layer. Midrange colors from top and background layers are mixed together more evenly.
color-burn Intensifies the dark areas in all layers. It increases the contrast between top and background layers, by tinting colors in overlapping area towards the top color. To do this it inverts colors of the background layer, divides the result by colors of the top layer, then inverts the results.

Contrast blend modes:

The following blend modes create contrast by both lightening the lighter areas and darkening the darker areas in the top layer by using lightening or darkening blend modes to create the blend. The contrast blend modes will lighten the colors lighter than 50% gray ([128,128,128]), and darken the colors darker than 50% gray. 50% gray will be transparent in the top layer. Each mode can create a variety of results depending on the colors of top and background layers being blended together. The overlay blend mode makes its calculations based on the brightness of the colors in the background layer while all of the other contrast blend modes make their calculations based on the brightness of the top layer. Some of these modes are designed to simulate the effect of shining a light through the top layer, effectively projecting upon the layers beneath it.

Contrast blend modes can be used to increase the contrast and saturation to have more vibrant colors and give a punch to your layers. For example, you can duplicate a layer and set overlay blend mode on the top layer to increase the contrast and tones of your layer. You can also add a polygon layer with a white fill symbol over a dark imagery layer and apply soft-light blend mode to increase the brightness in the imagery layer.

The following screenshots show an effect of the overlay blend mode on a GraphicsLayer. The left image shows when the buffer graphics layer has the normal blend mode. As you can see, the gray color for the buffer polygon is blocking the intersecting census tracts. The right image shows when the overlay blend mode is applied to the buffer graphics layer. The overlay blend mode darkens or lightens the gray buffer polygon depending on the colors of the background layer while the census tracts layer is shining through. See this in action.

Normal blend mode Overlay blend mode
no-blendmode overlay-blend
Blend mode Description
overlay Uses a combination of multiply and screen modes to darken and lighten colors in the top layer with the background layer always shining through. The result is darker color values in the background layer intensify the top layer, while lighter colors in the background layer wash out overlapping areas in the top layer.
soft-light Applies a half strength screen mode to lighter areas and half strength multiply mode to darken areas of the top layer. You can think of the soft-light as a softer version of the overlay mode.
hard-light Multiplies or screens the colors, depending on colors of the top layer. The effect is similar to shining a harsh spotlight on the top layer.
vivid-light Uses a combination of color-burn or color-dodge by increasing or decreasing the contrast, depending on colors in the top layer.

Component blend modes:

The following blend modes use primary color components, which are hue, saturation and luminosity to blend top and background layers. You can add a feature layer with a simple renderer over any layer and set hue, saturation, color or luminosity blend mode on this layer. With this technique, you create a brand new looking map.

The following screenshots show where the topo layer is blended with world hillshade layer with luminosity blend mode. The result is a drastically different looking map which preserves the brightness of the topo layer while adapting the hue and saturation of the hillshade layer.

color-blend
Blend mode Description
hue Creates an effect with the hue of the top layer and the luminosity and saturation of the background layer.
saturation Creates an effect with the saturation of the top layer and the hue and luminosity of the background layer. 50% gray with no saturation in the background layer will not produce any change.
luminosity Creates effect with the luminosity of the top layer and the hue and saturation of the background layer. Can be thought of as the opposite of color blend mode.
color Creates an effect with the hue and saturation of the top layer and the luminosity of the background layer. Can be thought of as the opposite of luminosity blend mode.

Composite blend modes:

The following blend modes can be used to mask the contents of top, background or both layers.

  • Destination modes are used to mask the data of the top layer with the data of the background layer.
  • Source modes are used to mask the data of the background layer with the data of the top layer.

The destination-in blend mode can be used to show areas of focus such as earthquakes, animal migration, or point-source pollution by revealing the underlying map, providing a bird’s eye view of the phenomenon. Check out multiple blending and groupLayer blending samples to see composite blend modes in action.

The following screenshots show feature and imagery layers on the left side on their own in the order they are drawn in the view. The imagery layer that contains land cover classification rasters. The feature layer contains 2007 county crops data. The right image shows the result of layer blending where destination-in blendMode is set on the imagery layer. As you can see, the effect is very different from the original layers. The blended result shows areas of cultivated crops only (where both imagery and feature layers overlap).

destination-in
Blend mode Description
destination-over Destination/background layer covers the top layer. The top layer is drawn underneath the destination layer. You'll see the top layer peek through wherever the background layer is transparent or has no data.
destination-atop Destination/background layer is drawn only where it overlaps the top layer. The top layer is drawn underneath the background layer. You'll see the top layer peek through wherever the background layer is transparent or has no data.
destination-in Destination/background layer is drawn only where it overlaps with the top layer. Everything else is made transparent.
destination-out Destination/background layer is drawn where it doesn't overlap the top layer. Everything else is made transparent.
source-atop Source/top layer is drawn only where it overlaps the background layer. You will see the background layer peek through where the source layer is transparent or has no data.
source-in Source/top layer is drawn only where it overlaps with the background layer. Everything else is made transparent.
source-out Source/top layer is drawn where it doesn't overlap the background layer. Everything else is made transparent.
xor Top and background layers are made transparent where they overlap. Both layers are drawn normal everywhere else.

Invert blend modes:

The following blend modes either invert or cancel out colors depending on colors of the background layer. These blend modes look for variations between top and background layers. For example, you can use difference or exclusion blend modes on two imagery layers of forest covers to visualize how forest covers changed from one year to another.

The invert blend mode can be used to turn any light basemap into a dark basemap to accommodate those who work in low-light conditions. The following screenshots show how setting the invert blend mode set on a feature layer with a simple renderer turns the world terrain basemap into a dark themed basemap in no time.

color-blend
Blend mode Description
difference Subtracts the darker of the overlapping colors from the lighter color. When two pixels with the same value are subtracted, the result is black. Blending with black produces no change. Blending with white inverts the colors. This blending mode is useful for aligning layers with similar content.
exclusion Similar to the difference blend mode, except that the resulting image is lighter overall. Overlapping areas with lighter color values are lightened, while darker overlapping color values become transparent.
minus Subtracts colors of the top layer from colors of the background layer making the blend result darker. In the case of negative values, black is displayed.
invert Inverts the background colors wherever the top and background layers overlap. The invert blend mode inverts the layer similar to a photographic negative.
reflect This blend mode creates effects as if you added shiny objects or areas of light in the layer. Black pixels in the background layer are ignored as if they were transparent.

Effect provides various filter functions that can be performed on the layer to achieve different visual effects similar to how image filters work. This powerful capability allows you to apply css filter-like functions to layers to create custom visual effects to enhance the cartographic quality of your maps. This is done by applying the desired effect to the layer's effect property as a string or an array of objects to set scale dependent effects.

Notes

  • Set featureEffect property if different effects need to be applied features that meet or fail a specified filter.
  • If all of the following four properties are applied, then they will be applied in this order: featureEffect, effect, opacity and blendMode.

Known Limitations

  • The effect is not supported in 3D SceneViews.
  • The effect cannot be applied to a layer with a heatmap renderer.
  • The effect is not supported in layers with featureReduction of type cluster enabled.
  • See print for known printing limitations.
Default Value:null

  },
  {
    scale: 4622324,
    value: "drop-shadow(1px, 1px, 2px)"
  }
];

The full extent of the layer. By default, this is worldwide. This property may be used to set the extent of the view to match a layer's extent so that its features appear to fill the view. See the sample snippet below.

Example
// Once the layer loads, set the view's extent to the layer's fullextent
layer.when(function(){
  view.extent = layer.fullExtent;
});

The unique ID assigned to the layer. If not set by the developer, it is automatically generated when the layer is loaded.

interpolation String

Defines how to interpolate pixel values. By default, this will be set to the service's resampling method, if it has one. If the service does not have a default resampling method, the bilinear resampling will be used in most cases. However, if the image service's cacheType is Raster and the data source is thematic (as declared in the service's keyProperties), and the service does not have a default resampling method, then the nearest interpolation type will be used.

Possible Values:"nearest"|"bilinear"|"cubic"|"majority"

loadWarnings Object[]readonly inherited

A list of warnings which occurred while loading.

maxScale Number

The maximum scale (most zoomed in) at which the layer is visible in the view. If the map is zoomed in beyond this scale, the layer will not be visible. A value of 0 means the layer does not have a maximum scale. The maxScale value should always be smaller than the minScale value, and greater than or equal to the service specification.

Default Value:0
Examples
// The layer will not be visible when the view is zoomed in beyond a scale of 1:1,000
layer.maxScale = 1000;
// The layer's visibility is not restricted to a maximum scale.
layer.maxScale = 0;
minScale Number

The minimum scale (most zoomed out) at which the layer is visible in the view. If the map is zoomed out beyond this scale, the layer will not be visible. A value of 0 means the layer does not have a minimum scale. The minScale value should always be larger than the maxScale value, and lesser than or equal to the service specification.

Default Value:0
Examples
// The layer will not be visible when the view is zoomed out beyond a scale of 1:3,000,000
layer.minScale = 3000000;
// The layer's visibility is not restricted to a minimum scale.
layer.minScale = 0;
multidimensionalDefinition DimensionalDefinition[]
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.20

The multidimensional definitions associated with the layer. Filters the layer by slicing data along defined variables and dimensions such as time, depth, altitude, etc. For example, you can display a particular variable such as temperature or salinity measured at a fixed dimension (e.g. time, depth).

Example
// set a multidimensinalSubset on the imagery tile layer
// so that users can only access wind magnitude and direction data
// between Jan 1 - 19, 2011.
const multidimensionalSubset = new MultidimensionalSubset({
  subsetDefinitions: [
    {
      variableName: "wind_magdir",
      dimensionName: "StdTime",
      values: [1293876000000, 1295395200000], // 1/1/11 - 1/19/11
      isSlice: false
    }
  ]
});
layer.multidimensionalSubset = multidimensionalSubset;
opacity Number inherited

The opacity of the layer. This value can range between 1 and 0, where 0 is 100 percent transparent and 1 is completely opaque.

Default Value:1
Example
// Makes the layer 50% transparent
layer.opacity = 0.5;
popupEnabled Boolean

Indicates whether to display popups when features in the layer are clicked.

Default Value:true
popupTemplate PopupTemplateautocast

The popup template for the layer. When set on the layer, the popupTemplate allows users to access attributes and display their values using text and/or charts in the view's popup when a pixel is clicked. See this sample for an example of how PopupTemplate interacts with an ImageryTileLayer.

A default popup template is automatically used if no popupTemplate has been defined when Popup.defaultPopupTemplateEnabled is set to true.

See also
portalItem PortalItem

The portal item from which the layer is loaded. If the portal item references a Feature Service or Scene Service, then you can specify a single layer to load with the layerId property.

Beginning with version 4.17, it is possible to load tables from feature service items hosted in ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise. This only applies to feature layers, and will successfully load if FeatureLayer.isTable returns true.

Examples
// While this example uses FeatureLayer, this same pattern can be
// used for other layers that may be loaded from portalItem ids.
const layer = new FeatureLayer({
  portalItem: {  // autocasts as new PortalItem()
    id: "caa9bd9da1f4487cb4989824053bb847"
  }  // the first layer in the service is returned
});
// Set hostname when using an on-premise portal (default is ArcGIS Online)
// esriConfig.portalUrl = "http://myHostName.esri.com/arcgis";

// While this example uses FeatureLayer, this same pattern can be
// used for SceneLayers.
const layer = new FeatureLayer({
  portalItem: {  // autocasts as new PortalItem()
    id: "8d26f04f31f642b6828b7023b84c2188"
  },
  // loads the third item in the given feature service
  layerId: 2
});
// Initialize GeoJSONLayer by referencing a portalItem id pointing to geojson file.
const layer = new GeoJSONLayer({
  portalItem: new PortalItem({
    id: "81e769cd7031482797e1b0768f23c7e1",
    // optionally define the portal, of the item.
    // if not specified, the default portal defined is used.
    // see https://developers.arcgis.com/javascript/latest/api-reference/esri-config.html#portalUrl
    portal: new Portal({
      url: "https://jsapi.maps.arcgis.com/"
    })
  }
});
// This snippet loads a table hosted in ArcGIS Online.
const table = new FeatureLayer({
  portalItem: { // autocasts as esri/portal/PortalItem
    id: "123f4410054b43d7a0bacc1533ceb8dc"
  }
});

// Before adding the table to the map, it must first be loaded and confirm it is the right type.
table.load().then(function() {
  if (table.isTable) {
    map.tables.add(table);
  }
});
rasterFields Field[]readonly
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.20

A complete list of fields that consists of service pixel value and vector fields. This list is used for layer's popupTemplate.

It is essential in many imagery workflows to show pixel values and related categorical information (if applicable) in a popup. To meet this requirement, there're additional raster fields used in image service popups, representing pixel values and corresponding attributes if the service has additional rasterAttributeTable resource. These raster fields are prefixed with Raster. to indicate that they are special fields and avoid any potential conflict with fields from service info.

Below is a list of raster fields that return different types of pixel values and their descriptions.

Service pixel value

The Raster.ServicePixelValue field returns a pixel value at the identifying location. This field exists for all image services.

Vector fields

The Raster.Magnitude and Raster.Direction fields return magnitude and direction values from a multidimensional dataset with a vector field.

Example
layer.when(() => {
  // print out field names returned in layer.rasterFields
  layer.rasterFields.forEach((field) => {
    console.log(field.name);
  });
});
rasterInfo RasterInforeadonly
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.19

Raster information retrieved from data source.

The client-side renderer assigned to the layer. The renderer defines how to visualize pixels in the tile imagery layer. Depending on the renderer type, the pixels may be stretched across the color ramp, classified, have different symbols based on values, or show shaded reliefs.

See also
sourceJSON Object

The tiled image service's metadata JSON exposed by the ArcGIS REST API. While most commonly used properties are exposed on the ImageryTileLayer class directly, this property gives access to all information returned by the tiled image service. This property is useful if working in an application built using an older version of the API which requires access to image service properties from a more recent version.

tileInfo TileInfoautocast

The tiling scheme information for the layer.

timeExtent TimeExtentautocast
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.22

The layer's time extent. When the layer's useViewTime is false, the layer instructs the view to show data from the layer based on this time extent. If the useViewTime is true, and both layer and view time extents are set, then features that fall within the intersection of the view and layer time extents will be displayed. For example, if the layer's time extent is set to display features between 1970 and 1975 and the view has a time extent set to 1972-1980, the effective time on the feature layer will be 1972-1975.

Default Value:null
Examples
if (!layer.useViewTime) {
  if (layer.timeExtent) {
    console.log("Current timeExtent:", layer.timeExtent.start, " - ", layer.timeExtent.end}
  } else {
    console.log("The layer will display data within the view's timeExtent.");
    console.log("Current view.timeExtent:", view.timeExtent.start, " - ", view.timeExtent.end}
  }
}
// set the timeExtent on the layer and useViewTime false
// In this case, the layer will honor its timeExtent and ignore
// the view's timeExtent
const layer = new ImageryTileLayer({
  url: "https://tiledimageservices.arcgis.com/V6ZHFr6zdgNZuVG0/arcgis/rest/services/NLDAS2011_daily_wind_magdir/ImageServer",
  timeExtent: {
    start: new Date(2014, 4, 18),
    end: new Date(2014, 4, 19)
  },
  useViewTime: false
});
// timeExtent is set on the layer and the view
// In this case, the layer will display features that fall
// within the intersection of view and layer time extents
// features within Jan 1, 1976 - Jan 1, 1981 will be displayed
const view = new MapView({
  timeExtent: {
    start: new Date(1976, 0, 1),
    end: new Date(2002, 0, 1)
  }
});
const layer = new FeatureLayer({
  url: myUrl,
  timeExtent: {
    start: new Date(1974, 0, 1),
    end: new Date(1981, 0, 1)
  }
});
timeInfo TimeInfoautocast
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.22

TimeInfo provides information such as date fields that store start and end time for each feature and the fullTimeExtent for the layer.

Default Value:null
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.22

A temporary offset of the time data based on a certain TimeInterval. This allows users to overlay features from two or more time-aware layers with different time extents. For example, if a layer has data recorded for the year 1970, an offset value of 2 years would temporarily shift the data to 1972. You can then overlay this data with data recorded in 1972. A time offset can be used for display purposes only. The query and selection are not affected by the offset.

Default Value:null
Example
// Offset a CSV Layer containing hurricanes from 2015 so that they appear in 2019 (+4 years).
let layer = new CSVLayer({
  url: `hurricanes-and-storms-2015.csv`,
  timeOffset: {
    value: 4,
    unit: "years"
  },
  timeInfo: {
    startField: "ISO_time"
  },
  renderer: {
    type: "simple",
    symbol: {
      type: "simple-marker",
      size: 6,
      color: "red",
      outline: {
        width: 0.5,
        color: "black"
      }
    }
  }
});
title String

The title of the layer used to identify it in places such as the Legend and LayerList widgets.

When loading a layer by service url, the title is derived from the service name. If the service has several layers, then the title of each layer will be the concatenation of the service name and the layer name. When the layer is loaded from a portal item, the title of the portal item will be used instead. Finally, if a layer is loaded as part of a webmap or a webscene, then the title of the layer as stored in the webmap/webscene will be used.

type Stringreadonly

For ImageryTileLayer the type is always "imagery-tile".

url String

The URL of the REST endpoint of the layer. The URL may either point to a resource on ArcGIS Enterprise or ArcGIS Online.

Starting at version 4.25, ImageryTileLayer can be created by setting the url property to point to a Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF (COG) file. See Referencing Cloud Optimized GeoTiff URL section for more information.

See also
useViewTime Boolean
Since: ArcGIS Maps SDK for JavaScript 4.22

Determines if the layer will update its temporal data based on the view's timeExtent. When false, the layer will display its temporal data based on the layer's timeExtent, regardless of changes to the view. If both view and layer time extents are set while this property is true, then the features that fall within the intersection of the view and layer time extents will be displayed. For example, if a layer's time extent is set to display features between 1970 and 1975 and the view has a time extent set to 1972-1980, the effective time on the feature layer will be 1972-1975.

Default Value:true
Example
if (featureLayer.useViewTime) {
  console.log("Displaying data between:", view.timeExtent.start, " - ", view.timeExtent.end);
}
version Numberreadonly

The version of ArcGIS Server in which the image service is published.

visible Boolean inherited

Indicates if the layer is visible in the View. When false, the layer may still be added to a Map instance that is referenced in a view, but its features will not be visible in the view.

Default Value:true
Example
// The layer is no longer visible in the view
layer.visible = false;
