This class allows you to display data from an ArcGIS Map service by using dynamically generated map images.
public sealed class ArcGISMapImageLayer : ImageAdjustmentLayer, INotifyPropertyChanged, ILoadable, ILayerContent, ITimeAware
ArcGIS map image layer displays maps from an ArcGIS map server (version 9.3 and higher) using REST. A map service can contain multiple layers, rendered by the server each time a request is made and returned to the client as a single image. While the image itself does not contain information about the features it displays, you can get the underlying data (service feature table) for each sub-layer. This layer supports time-based filtering.
Map images are created and returned by the server on every request, so they always show the latest data at the time of the request. Characteristics of the image, such as brightness, contrast, gamma, and opacity can be specified. By obtaining the associated sub-layers of the ArcGISMapImageLayer using the Sublayers property, you can control each sub-layer visibility and filter the data via the definition expression. Also, the spatial reference can be changed from the service's default and the service will re-project each image on the fly.
The underlying service feature table, for each map
image sub-layer or for non-spatial tables used in the service, can be accessed via the
Tables property. These tables can be queried using any
valid combination of attribute, spatial, and temporal criteria via the numerous
QueryFeaturesAsync methods. You can also query for
or to find related features in other tables via the numerous
If you want the background color for the map image to be transparent, make sure the ImageFormat is set to PNG.
The map service creates map images on the fly. Rendering time depends on the amount and complexity of the data in the map. This will typically be slower than fetching the equivalent map as pre-rendered (or cached) tiles via an ArcGISTiledLayer. Because the server renders the map, map image layers require less processing time on the client than similar maps rendered locally.
ArcGIS map image layers are good candidates for showing features that change periodically over time, or that require some sort of filtering by the user. Although rendering occurs on the server, the client has access to service feature tables for all sub-layers (as well as non-spatial tables and relationships).
