ArcGISTiledLayer

Displays data from a ArcGIS Map service using pre-generated tiles. ArcGIS tiled layers consume image tiles provided by an ArcGIS map service or a tile package. Raster tiles are cached by the server at various scales instead of dynamically generating map images at the request of the client application. The client requests the tiles needed at a particular map extent. You can use the ExportTileCacheTask class to generate and download tiles from the service, creating a tile package (.tpk/.tpkx) for use locally on the device. Alternatively, you can use ArcGIS Pro to create a map tile package and provision it to the device. You can tell if an ArcGIS map server is hosting a compatible ArcGISTiledLayer when "Single Fused Map Cache" is true in the ArcGIS REST Services Directory.

Functional characteristics ArcGIS tiled layers do not support reprojection, query, select, identify, or editing.

Performance characteristics Tiled image layers (those that derive functionality from the ImageTiledLayer class) provide fast display of geographic imagery stored in raster files. These rasters typically contain image data acquired from satellite, aircraft, or drones. The resolution of such imagery can be very high, providing a detailed view. With increased resolution comes increased file sizes and potentially slower performance.

Raster tiling is a process that resamples the pixel size at different scales to create images with the appropriate resolution for each scale. The tiling process creates level-of-detail pyramids to efficiently manage how much detail you see as you zoom in and out on the map. Typically, as you zoom closer to the Earth's surface, you want to see greater detail of the geographic information. Tiled image layers allow you to see just the information you need very quickly based on the level-of-detail pyramid at a particular scale, rather than having to load a single large image at once.

Tiles are generated by the server when the service is created. Requests for tiles are made on multiple threads and handled asynchronously. The size of each returned tile increases as the resolution or complexity of the image in the tile increases. For example, high-resolution imagery tiles can be result in larger file sizes than topographic mapping for the same area and map extent.

Creates an ArcGIS Tiled Layer object from an item.

fun ArcGISTiledLayer(tileCache: TileCache)

Creates an ArcGIS Tiled Layer object from a tile cache.

Link copied to clipboard

Creates an ArcGIS Tiled Layer object. If the specified URI is a portal item URL (see PortalItem.PortalItem(String) for the supported URL formats), the underlying PortalItem will be created and accessible through Layer.item. Use this object to create an ArcGIS tiled layer.

open override var apiKey: ApiKey?

An API key is a unique key used to authorize access to specific services and resources in ArcGIS Online. It is also used to monitor access to those services.

Link copied to clipboard
open override var attribution: String

The attribution string for the image tiled layer.

Link copied to clipboard

The brightness of the layer.

Link copied to clipboard
open override val canChangeVisibility: Boolean

A flag indicating whether the layer content's visibility can be changed. A flag indicating whether the layer content visibility can be changed. Will return false if an error occurs.

Link copied to clipboard

The contrast of the layer.

Link copied to clipboard

The description for the layer. The description of the layer.

Link copied to clipboard

The full extent of this layer, which is the extent where all layer data is contained. You can use this to zoom to all of the data contained in this layer. For feature layers, the extent is retrieved from the tables extent.

Link copied to clipboard

The gamma of the layer.

Link copied to clipboard
var id: String

The unique identifying string for the layer, for example specified in a map or scene. The id is used by other parts of this API to refer to a specific Layer, such as in a set of FeatureFenceParameters or a FacilityLayerDefinition. If not supplied, all layers will be assigned a unique id when created.

Link copied to clipboard

Whether the layer supports identify. If the layer is not loaded it may return false if identify support is determined by metadata that is not yet available.

Link copied to clipboard
open override var isVisible: Boolean

The layer content's visibility. The layer content visibility. Will return false if an error occurs.

Link copied to clipboard
val item: Item?

The item the layer has been created from.

Link copied to clipboard
open override val loadStatus: StateFlow<LoadStatus>

The load status.

Link copied to clipboard

The maximum scale for the layer. This controls the maximum scale level the layer can zoom to. All of the connected map views will be updated.

Link copied to clipboard

The minimum scale for the layer. This controls the minimum scale level the layer can zoom to. All of the connected map views will be updated.

Link copied to clipboard
open override var name: String

The name of this layer.

Link copied to clipboard

Determines how a tile request that returns 'NoData' is resampled. Zooming in can result in tile requests with no tiles at the requested level of detail. In this case, there are options that control what to display where the tile should be including:

Link copied to clipboard

The opacity for the layer. All of the connected map views will be updated.

Link copied to clipboard
open override var refreshInterval: Long?

The objects refresh interval. The refresh interval, in milliseconds. A refresh interval of null means never refresh.

Link copied to clipboard
open override var showInLegend: Boolean

A flag indicating whether the layer content participates in the legend. A flag indicating whether the layer content is shown in the legend.

Link copied to clipboard

The spatial reference of the layer.

Link copied to clipboard
open override val subLayerContents: StateFlow<List<LayerContent>>

The sub layer contents of a layer content.

Link copied to clipboard

The tile information. Use this method to set tile info on an already created tiled layer.

Link copied to clipboard
val visibilityChanged: SharedFlow<Boolean>

Callback invoked when the visibility of the layer changes.
