Use case

Feature collection layers are often used to hold features with mixed geometry or unstructured data. You can display feature collections stored in a Portal, which are often used for showing content from a CSV or map notes.

How to use the sample

The feature collection is loaded from the Portal item when the sample starts.

How it works

  1. Create a Portal.
  2. Create the PortalItem, referring to the portal and an item ID.
  3. Verify that the item represents a feature collection.
  4. Create a FeatureCollection from the item.
  5. Create a FeatureCollectionLayer, referring to the feature collection.
  6. Add the feature collection layer to the map's OperationalLayers collection.
