ArcGIS tiled layer

This code sample is available for these platforms:
View Sample on GitHub

Load an ArcGIS tiled layer from a URL.


Use case

An ArcGISTiledLayer consumes raster tiles provided by an ArcGIS service or a tile package (.tpk & .tpkx). Dividing a raster into tiles allows the map to provide relevant tiles and level of detail to the user when panning and zooming.

How it works

  1. Add an ArcGISTiledLayer from an ArcGIS Online service URL to the ArcGISMap as an operational layer.

Relevant API

  • Map
  • ArcGISTiledLayer
  • MapView

Additional information

ArcGISTiledLayer supports both .tpk and .tpkx file formats.
