Add a feature layer

Learn how to use a URL to access and display a feature layer in a map.

add a feature layer

A map contains layers of geographic data. A map contains a basemap layer and, optionally, one or more data layers. This tutorial shows you how to access and display a feature layer in a map. You access feature layers with an item ID or URL. You will use URLs to access the Trailheads, Trails, and Parks and Open Spaces feature layers and display them in a map.

A feature layer is a dataset in a feature service hosted in ArcGIS. Each feature layer contains features with a single geometry type (point, line, or polygon), and a set of attributes. You can use feature layers to store, access, and manage large amounts of geographic data for your applications.

Prerequisites

The following are required for this tutorial:

  1. An ArcGIS account to access API keys. If you don't have an account, sign up for free.
  2. Your system meets the system requirements.
  3. The ArcGIS Runtime API for Qt is installed.

Steps

Open the project in Qt Creator

  1. To start this tutorial, complete the Display a map tutorial or download and unzip the solution.

  2. Open the display_a_map project in Qt Creator.

  3. If you downloaded the Display a map solution, set your API key.

    An API Key enables access to services, web maps, and web scenes hosted in ArcGIS Online.

    1. Go to your developer dashboard to get your API key. For these tutorials, use your default API key. It is scoped to include all of the services demonstrated in the tutorials.

    2. In the Projects window, in the Sources folder, open the main.cpp file.

    3. Modify the code to set the API key. Paste the API key, acquired from your dashboard, between the quotes.

      main.cpp
      Add line.Add line.Add line.Add line.Add line.

Add a polygon feature layer

This tutorial will draw the map in following order:

  1. ArcGISTopographic basemap style layer
  2. Parks and Open Spaces (polygons)
  3. Trails (lines)
  4. Trailheads (points)

It is important to add feature layers in the correct order so features are displayed correctly. Polygon feature layers are typically created before lines or points, so that those features are not obscured by the polygons.

Use the FeatureLayer class to reference the Parks and Open Spaces URL and add features to the map.

  1. Go to the Parks and Open Spaces URL and browse the properties of the layer. You may want to explore the Name, Type, Drawing Info, and Fields properties.

  2. Within the setupMap method, add the following code. Create a QUrl instance named polygonFeatureUrl using an ArcGIS feature server as the feature data source. Then create a ServiceFeatureTable named polygon_feature_table from that QUrl.

    You should see a map view centered in the Santa Monica Mountains, with your feature layer showing the Parks and Open Spaces layer in the map.

Add a line feature layer

Line features are typically displayed in a feature layer before points. Use the FeatureLayer class to reference the Trails URL and add features to the map, as described next.

  1. Add the following code to create a QUrl instance named lineFeatureUrl using the ArcGIS feature server as the feature data source, in this case, Trails_Styled. Then create a ServiceFeatureTable named line_feature_table from that QUrl.
